“Practice, exercise, are involved in the acquisition of power, but they do not take the form of meaningless drill, but of practicing the art. They occur as part of the operation of attaining a desired end…. All genuine education terminates in discipline, but it proceeds by engaging the mind in activities worthwhile for their own sake.”
