Svornost -- June 15, 1878
Teach them, an honest mechanic has a greater value even though he has no possessions or wealth, than a dozen well-dressed, slick, high-toned idlers.
Teach them to have pleasure in nature through gardening. Being financially able, teach them music, painting and fine arts, but keep in mind that these accomplishments are not necessities.
Teach them, to that to take a walk along the promenade is better than to go riding and that flowers growing wild are much more beautiful to one who knows how to observe them carefully.
Teach them, to disdain hypocrisy and, whether, yes or no, we should do likewise.
Teach them, matrimonial happiness does not depend upon outside influences nor upon the husband's property but upon his character.
Having taught them these things and if they understand them, let them seek a mate. They will not go astray even without your assistance.
