If philosophy gives a man nothing more than a loftier conception of himself than he otherwise would have, it would still be a worthwhile study. Yet it is not a conception which makes self-conceit, vanity, and pride grow bigger. On the contrary, it is more likely to be accompanied by a sacred humility.
