“There is this remarkable in the strong affections of the mother,
in the formation of the literary character; that without ever par-
taking of, or sympathising with the pleasures the child is fond of, the
mother will often cherish those first decided tastes, merely from the
delight of promoting the happiness of her son ; so that genius,
which some would produce in a preconceived system, or implant by
stratagem, or inforce by application, with her may be only the
watchful labour of love."--D’Israeli on the Literary Character.
