Excerpt from Bucolica, Georgica, Et Æneis: Accedunt Clavis Metrica, Notulæ Anglicæ, Et Quæstiones

The student will hardly take the pains of disentangling an intricate sentence when the work is done to his hand; nor will the test of grammatical construction or of prosody be applied, when a glance at the interpretation will remove all doubts. The habit of thus referring to the judgment of others soon becomes settled; While that of analysing is never formed, nor the disci pline of mind acquired, which it is suited to effect. Besides this, the habit of using these unnecessary aids prevents that feeling of self-reliance which successful efforts alone can secure.
