1910 | On Definition and Classification | MS [R] 649:26-7
When I speak of a man’s Real Self, or True Nature, I mean the Very Springs of Action in him, which means how he would act, not when in haste, but after due consideration; and by “due consideration,” I mean such deliberation as shall give him time to develop, to grow up to his proper Manhood, which many a man never does actually attain in this world, scarce any of us fully.
