THE INCREASE OF WHAT IS INTERESTING.  In the course of higher education everything becomes interesting to man, he knows how to find the instructive side of a thing quickly and to put his finger on the place where it can fill up a gap in his ideas, or where it may verify a thought.  Through this boredom disappears more and more, and so does excessive excitability of temperament.  Finally he moves among men like a botanist among plants, and looks upon himself as a phenomenon, which only greatly excites his discerning instinct.
