Excerpt from The Smith College Monthly, Vol. 22: October, 1914

The rules are Obvious enough, very direct and clear, and quite Often forced none too subtly upon our attention. The clang of the ten O'clock bell we cannot evade. And the in?exibility of our social regulations admits Of no question. Rules are and do direct. But Of course we recognize their value and we fall back upon their guidance with a feeling of comfortable security. And we even find them often necessary to us. Witness our eager efforts in behalf Of the permission system, that perfect paradox Of rules, a regulation of exceptions. That we do need rules no one can doubt. But the rules are seldom stimulating they are the results rather than the incitements of experiences and so they teach us to understand the past, and not the future. They must exist as the outline for our sketch of life; most Of us have learned that. But the better half Of our education comes when we learn the value Of exceptions.
