“Children who are sustained on the best in music, reading and art will develop a genuineness of instinct, assurity of spiritual ear which will be invaluable throughout their lives. They learn not to be fooled by cheapness and they will never forget the images of purity, chivalry, integrity and beauty they gained from reading and listening to the very best of what the human heart and mind have to offer. When their souls are well-formed, they will be able to withstand many of the delusions and shallow mockeries which will await them in the world.”
