Book.
Author: Frederick Jackson Turner
Title: The Significance of the Frontier in American History
Place of publication: New York
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Date: 1988
Page: 198

From the conditions of frontier life came intellectual traits of profound importance. The
work of travelers along each frontier from colonial days onward describe certain
common traits, and these traits have, while softening down, still persisted as survivals in
the place of their origin, even when a higher social organization succeeded. The result is
that to the frontier the American intellect owes its striking characteristics. That
coarseness and strength combined with acuteness and acquisitiveness; that practical,
inventive turn of mind, quick to find expedients; that masterful grasp of material things,
lacking in the artistic but powerful to effect great ends; that restless, nervous energy;
that dominant individualism, working for good and for evil, and withal that buoyancy
and exuberance which comes with freedom—these are traits of the frontier, or traits
called out elsewhere because of the existence of the frontier.
