[ Also see Appreciation Civilization Culture Delicacy Education Elegance Growth Ignorance Refinement Sensibility Taste ]

Cultivation to the mind is as necessary as food is to the body.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

A well-cultivated mind is, so to speak, made up of all the minds of preceding ages; it is only one single mind which has been educated during all this time.
      - Bernard de Bovier de Fontenelle

It matters little whether a man be mathematically or philologically or artistically cultivated, so he be but cultivated.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Man is born barbarous--he is ransomed from the condition of beasts only by being cultivated.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

Cultivate all your faculties; you must either use them or lose them.
      - Sir John Lubbock, Lord Avebury

Cultivated men and women who do not skim the cream of life, and are attached to the duties, yet escape the harder blows, make acute and balanced observers.
      - George Meredith

The highest purpose of intellectual cultivation is to give a man a perfect knowledge and mastery of his own inner self; to render our consciousness its own light and its own mirror.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)
