all men very

naturally desire knowledge

indication of this

is our esteem

for senses apart

from their use

we esteem them

for their own

sake most of

all sense of

sight not only

with view to

action but even

when no action

is contemplated we

prefer sight to

all other senses

reason for this

is that of

all senses sight

best helps us

to know things

and reveals many

distinctions now animals

are by nature

born with power

of sensation now

from this some

acquire faculty of

memory whereas others

do not we

must first listen

before we speak

we must prepared

to be taught

knowledge is our

true inheritance do

it because you

love it
