Thomas H Huxley
 A Professor's Advice to Boys
Education, Endeavour, Industry, Human Development, Schools
Presents an extract of a speech given by Huxley at a prize-giving ceremony at University College School. Huxley surmises that those who won prizes are 'the sharpest, quickest, most industrious, and strongest boys in the school', and share the qualities of 'Quickness in learning, readiness and accuracy in reproducing what is learnt, industry, endurance'. He goes on to emphasise the importance of 'intellectual quickness, industry, and the power of bearing fatigue' in 'whatever career you may enter'.
