Excerpt from Address Delivered at the 24th Annual Commencement of Wellesley College: June 23, 1902

In this reaction, when you have shu?ed OR the coil of your last college days and find yourself face to face with a new life or with the return to an old one, you are prone to ask, What has it all been for? Am I fitter for the life I must live than if I had been living it four years already College has been fascinating, no doubt; but many fascinating things do not pay. I have Opened several doors to knowledge, and have learned that, work as hard and as long as I may, I can never see the thousandth part of that to which a single one of them may lead; I have formed friendships that will last; I have won something with which I would not part for money and without which I can no more imagine myself than I can conceive myself annihilated. These college years have become an inextricable part of me; yet am I, after all, happier and better than if I had never tasted their sweetness had never caught glimpses of ideals that in every-day life may be my rebuke and my despair In a small degree you feel as men and women feel when they wake to the truth that their elders have moved on that they themselves are now the older generation to whom the younger turns for counsel; that other people will lean on them, and that the days when they may lean on other people are gone and gone forever.
