« Every now and then we should examine ourselves; self-amendment is the offspring of
self knowledge. But foreigners do not examine our condition; they only glance at its sur-
face. Why should we print volumes upon other countries and be silent upon our own?
Why traverse the world and neglect the phenomena around us? Why should the spirit of
our researches be a lynx in Africa and a mole in England? Why, in one word, should a
nation be never criticised by a native ? »
