[Explanation in blue, original in black]
Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.
Study as an activity, in whatever form, brings us joy and enhances our thinking, speaking and writing ability adding charm to our personality.
Their chief use for delight is in privateness and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment and disposition of business.
