    Question Ummm? Help, please?

    "pure delight in contemplation; on the other pure benevolence..."
    "It is stronger, as a rule, in very young children than in adults, who are apt to view objects in utilitarian spirit. It plays a large part in our feelings toward human beings, some whom have charm and some the reverse, when considered simply as objects of aesthetic contemplation."

    Umm, I don't seem to understand them..Can somebody please rephrase them in speakable/understandalbe English?

    Re: Ummm? Help, please?

    The first sentence lacks context, without which it is hard to make sense of it.

    What is "it" in the second sentence?
