In Love and Anger: A View of the 'Sixties

By Andrew Sinclair | Go to book overview

1
THE SOFT ESTABLISHMENT
Men do not become what by nature they are meant to be, but what society makes them. The generous feelings, and high propensities of the soul are, as it were, shrunk up, seared, violently wrenched, and amputated, to fit us for our intercourse with the world, something in the manner that beggars maim and mutilate their children, to make them fit for their future situation in life.
