The most prominent obstacle in the way of this reproduction is the presence of other varieties, which mix in the blossom.

One can conceive, on the other hand, that when geniuses have leisure to mix in society their desire is to escape from the questions which daily burden their minds. If they prefer to confine themselves to an interchange of ideas apart from their special work, they have a right to do so. In this shrinking of people of genius from discussing ...
