THE POL Y N i: S I A N
IJkpk.nh upon voir own Exr.uno.s von
Si itokt. This is an e.v ?ll''nt orinciple fur
the working and trading classes id'tho com
inanity to adopt, !nt tho tmu jhil ;)sophy of
it is scarcely understood, rsotwithstnndin'.;
the ninny ties that connect a man with soci
ety, he nevertheless has ' imprinted on his
forehead the original doom, that lie im.st he
chielly dependent on his own lahor and ex
ertions lor Mipport. It is an incontiovi i ti
lde fact, lomxlcd iion enciul experience,
that where a man tnMs to his own exertions
in life, lie generally succeeds, if not in
amassing a fortune, at least in obtaining a
comfortable living. On the other hand, he
who depends upon others tor his success in
lite, often finds himself wofully disappointed.
Nothing gives so good an assurance of well
doing as the personal activity of a man daily
exerted forhisown interest. Hut should the
same indiv idual find himself suddenly oilcrcd
a patronage; likely to enrich him, or tall into
the heritage, or supposed heritage of some
antiquated claim to property, which he thinks
it necessary to prosecute it is ten to one,
that he ceases to he industrious from that
moment, and is finally ruined. The only
true way to make a happy progress in this
world, is to go on in a dogged, persevering
pursuit of one good nhjeet, neither turning
to the right nor the left, hut making our bu
siness our pleasure as much as possible, till
we find ourselves at the goal of our wishes,
with a fortune almost unconsciously in our
possession. Humanity, kindred, friendship,
have their claims upon us, which we should
always consider and look upon with good
and proper feelings, but not injure ourselves
by gning too freely to relieve the wants of
others; we should be just, kind, and affable
to all; and endeavor to instill into the minds
of others, the same spirit of industry and per
severance that animates us, enjoining them
always to remember that success in life is
more certain of attainment by their own un
aided exertions, than by any reliance for as
sistance from others.
