     "I have sometimes felt that the function of seminary is to unfit men for the ministrythat is, so to change their views of theological and social questions as to make it difficult for them to return to their constituencies.  Which is all the more reason why they should return and wrestle with the problem of how to shed light without extinguishing the candles, and a teacher should give them some directives."
