"Hail, Harvard University. Surely the hopes of America can never be disappointed, while thy walls continue to be filled with learned and virtuous men." American education cultivates "simple manners", "noble virtue," and religion. The rest of the world-- Africa, Europe, South America, etc.-- is sunk in misery.
