“My young readers must excuse me for calling upon them to acquire, while their minds may be
impressed with new images, a love of innocent pleasures, and an ardour for useful knowledge; to remember
that a blighted spring makes a barren year; and that the verpal flowers, however beautiful and gay, are only
intended as preparatives for autumnal fruits."

Johnson.
