t^^^^l^j^THi: MAN WHO SHIRKS 135 YOUTH MIST
?^v' ?tliS WORK HA H? IN OLD AGE.
Ordinarily, SUCCESSFUL men prefer to work hard In YOUTH.
Most of the lovers of the Ostermoor are COMPELLED to work hard AF
TER the energy of youth is spent ; and the Rider of the White Dorse over
takes THEM while they are panting from unwilling exertion.
They are compelled In OLD AGE to do detail work in competition with
young men of a new generation who are full of hope.
No blushing Aurora infuses strength and vigor into the gloom of an old
man driven to work. His eyes are not turned toward the east, and he knows
that VICTORY can scarcely reach him before THE REAPER does.
Even if a young man has NO HIGHER AMBITION THAN TO ESCAPE
WORK, he should put forth every effort of body and mind between 15 and 30,
The human insect who expects to get by for 60 years without doing any
USEFUL WORK, is either a fool or the son of a millionaire; which is usually
another way of saying the same thing.
Every man not in the class just mentioned is compelled by circumstances
to work either at one end of his life or the other, and WISE MEN work at
If a man spends the first .'10 years of his life learning how to render the
world a USEFUL SERVICE he is training himself in the way he should go.
and When he is old he will not depart from it.
Misspent youth is followed by years of joyless labor?for enforced service
is slavery, and the peon never sings at Iiis work.
Date in the fall, in the days of Aesop, the Ants handed out some informa
tion to the Grasshoppers that was worth a million dollars a word. "You have
fiddled and danced all summer." said the Ants, "while we have been storing up
grain and building houses for the winter. Now you must pay the fiddler."
