This is the transcription of a lecture given by Manly in 1985 at the Philosophical Research Society in Los Feliz, CA.
Manly Hall discusses the criteria by which we should choose those teachers that will guide and inspire our quest for wisdom; and our own responsibilities as students.Transcription of the audio tape done by Clarke E. Johnston.
p. 5 -- "It is possible for a person to become inspired by association with desirable types of thinkers and believers, the meeting of the individual with other persons of high resolve and high intention and noble experience in life. All these things are objective help but they DO NOT contribute the actual substance. All they can possibly do is inspire. This is all any teacher can do is to inspire the individual to do his own job. Anyone promising other than that should be approached with due caution because of the face that most people are looking fore someone to give them a painless solution for the mystery and miseries of existence. We want to do do mostly what we please but we want to find a way of doing it and escape the consequences of our mistakes."
