They [Young People] have exalted notions because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations, moreover their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things / and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning / all their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything / they love too much hate too much and the same with everything else.
