Young Talents.  With respect to young talents we must strictly follow Goethe's maxim, that we should often avoid harming error in order to avoid harming truth.  Their condition is like the diseases of pregnancy, and involves strange appetites.  These appetites should be satisfied and humoured as far as possible, for the sake of the fruit they may be expected to produce.  It is true that, as nurse of these remarkable invalids, one must learn the difficult art of voluntary self-abasement.
