Excerpt from History, Life, Administration, and Times of James Buchanan, Fifteenth President of the United States: Great Border Dissensions, and Beginning of the War for the Union

The wealthy are not the sole, nor perhaps, indeed, the first patrons of education. Vast numbers of the men who have risen to distinction in the history of the world have not been surrounded in youth by circumstances most conducive to intellectual expansion. Nor have they always been favored by springing from that pecuniary condition which has for a century borne the motto, 'I have nothing else to give my children, and must, therefore, give them a good education.' Notwithstanding the incorrect and insidious sentiment which lurks in this principle, it is supposed, quite generally, to be laudable, and the men and women who utter it become educators and the champions of education.
