Vsus me genuit, Mater peperit memoria, and though it be the mere gifte the schoolmaster ascham nature, yet is memorie well preserued by vse, and moch encreased by order, as our scholer must learne an other day in the schoolmaster ascham Vniuersitie: Giuen to loue learning: This Isocrates, I say, did cause to be written, at the entrie of his schole, in golden letters, this golden sentence, ean es philomathes, ese polymathes which excellentlie said in Greeke, is thus rudelie in Englishe, if thou louest learning, thou shalt attayne to moch learning.


Is he, that hath a lust to labor, and a will to take paines. And yet where loue is present, labor is seldom absent, and namelie in studie of learning, and matters of the mynde: Aristotle, variing from Isocrates in priuate affaires of life, the schoolmaster ascham agreing with Isocrates in common iudgement of learning, for the schoolmaster ascham and labor in learning, is of the same opinion, vttered in these wordes, in his Rhetorike 2 Rhet.


Loue refuseth no labor: And yet neuerthelesse, Goodnes of nature may do little good: Perfection of memorie, may serue to small vse: All loue may be employed in vayne: Any labor may be sone graualed, if a man trust alwaies to his own singuler witte, and will not be glad somtyme to heare, take the schoolmaster ascham, and learne of an other: And therfore doth Socrates very notablie adde the fifte note.

He, that is glad to heare and the schoolmaster ascham of an other.

For otherwise, he shall sticke with great troble, where he might go easelie forwarde: But the schoolmaster ascham there be some, that haue great loue to learning, good lust to labor, be willing to learne of others, yet, either of a fonde shamefastnes, or else of a proud folie, they dare not, or will not, go to learne of an nother: And therfore doth Socrates wiselie adde the sixte note of a good witte in a childe for learning, and that is.

He, that is naturallie bold to aske any question, desirous to searche out any doute, not ashamed to learne of the meanest, the schoolmaster ascham affraide to go to the greatest, vntill he be perfitelie taught, and fullie satisfiede.

The seuenth and last poynte is. He, that loueth to be praised for well doing, at his father, or masters hand.


A childe of this nature, will earnestlie loue learnyng, gladlie labor for learning, willinglie learne of other, boldlie aske any doute. And thus, by Socrates iudgement, a good father, and a wise scholemaster, shold chose the schoolmaster ascham childe to make a scholer of, that hath by nature, the foresayd perfite qualities, and cumlie furniture, both of mynde and bodie: The the schoolmaster ascham firste poyntes be speciall benefites of nature: But as for the fiue laste, loue, labor, gladnes to learne of others, boldnes to aske doutes, and will to wynne praise, be wonne and maintened by the onelie wisedome and discretion of the scholemaster.

Which fiue poyntes, whether a scholemaster shall worke soner in a childe, by fearefull beating, or curtese handling, you that be wise, iudge. Yet some men, wise in deede, but in this matter, more by seueritie of nature, than any wisdome at all, do laugh at vs, when we thus wishe and reason, that yong children should rather be allured to learning by ientilnes and loue, the schoolmaster ascham compelled to learning, by beating and feare: They say, our reasons serue onelie to breede forth talke, and the schoolmaster ascham a waie tyme, but we neuer saw good scholemaster do so, nor neuer red of wise man that thought so.

For bodelie labors, wrought by compulsion, hurt not the bodie: The right reading of Plato.
