SPAN OF LIFE
George Bernard Shaw says tho
only hope for progress Is by pro
longing tho span of life.
Just about tho time a man be
comes wiso enough to be of uao to
the "world ho dies, says Shaw.
If wo could live to the ripe ago
of 150 or 200 years, we could really
do something worth while by utiliz
ing our experience.
What do you think of the Idea?
If a man has twlco as long to
make good, do you think he could
make any better accounting of him
self? Does a man really become wiser
as ho grows older or Is It hotter
to turn things over to a fresh pack
of young men every thirty or forty
In considering this, question please
bear in mind there Is no such thing
as absolute wisdom.
As D. H. Lawrence says, "Wis
dom has relerence only to the past.
The future remains forever an in
finite fiold of mistakes."
Conditions are ever changing and
probably tho daring and fresh view
point of tho new generation is as
valuable as tho wisdom of the old
generation In meeting new problems.
Certainly It does not seem that
by age of thirty or forty! It Is pos
sible for a man to know about all
there is to know.
At about thirty-five, Hanry Thomas
I!ucklo knew more about tho past
than probably any other man who
In his library when ho died at
forty were eleven thousand books,
which ho had carefully digested, be
sides ten thousand more which he
had disposed of -when done with
Tho fruit of this reading Is con
tained in his "History of Civilization"
which everyone ought to read, and
having read, will have the founda
tion for an education.
It seems to us that Buckle was
entitled to die when ho had finished
the job. From "Toots" Magazine.
