pie THE GREATEST ART
e Ts OU will look around you with
a ndarkened vision, without preju
E. dice i your heart, and with a mind
bent upon getting at the truth quite
regardless of the pang It may cause
Syour pride, you will discover that the
greatest art of all arts is the art of
C. pleasing others.
nd And this art, though simple as It
H may appear on the surface, is the most
dilcult are In the whole world of ha
It means at the very beginning of
its acceptance the subjugation of
1st pirit and passion, the eonformatiOn
of will, talent and effort to the free
W reception of others who shall event
be sally pass upon your work and give
ir It approval.
Like you, the judges are human,
80 but their judgment, however it may
le affect your purse or temper, is fial, j
n- Inasmuch as it opens the door to hope
or imprisons you with despair.
You may paint a beautiful plctgre,
e but if it falls to please others no
0- ihoiy will praise or buy it. Andf you
proceed to nurse your disappointment
with ll-humor, oblivious to the fact
that the painting is defident some
where in color, drawing or atmosphere
r. of the quality that gives satisfaction.
t- But the true artist, in whatever Seld
of human endeavor he may be seeling
success, turns each failure to aeeont I
a, by studying it good-humoredly and
Id checking up its defects.
He turns the first canvas to the wall
and begins to paint again, carefully
ir avoiding previous mistakes.
And it is in such action as this that
there Is shown the tru6 mettle of the
man or woman who is determined to d
forget self by pleasing others.
- It may be a difimult lesson to lear,
S and it may take years to comprehend
all its Intricacies and minute details,
but when it is once mastered, old
9 heartaches disappear like the hoary P
frost in the shining morning sun.
S To please others ought to be the
chlef purpose of every young man
Sand woman dependent on his or her
ph)sical or mental effort for livelihood
and success. t
S Though an extremely trying thing
to do, calling for patience and some
times great haMlity, It freqantl
Y bestows upon those who have the forti- F
tude to overcome rewards far in ex
ces of their greatest expectattobg, and
a Joy whose gladness cannot be ex- C
pressed In words.
