Excerpt from The Letter and the Spirit: A Baccalaureate Sermon, Preached in Marquand Chapel, Princeton, N. J., June 8, 1890
You have made but a poor use of your facilities here, my friends, if you are not able to make the distinction I have named. This indeed is no small part... of education. We have tried to train you so as to bring you under the power of ideas._ We have aimed to educate you so that you may become scholars and not pedants; jurists and not pettifoggers men of science and not the bottle washers of a laboratory theologians and not textualists religious men who think again through God's word the thoughts of God, and not dealers in cant phrases or slaves of a stupid literalism.
