TANGING In the offices of one of
the best' known businessmen In
this country5, Is"; this motto:
, "You cannot :getout of a'man what ":,
God Almighty" did not put . into him.
You must suit the man "to the job;
not the job to the man." .
Perhaps there is & simpler and..
more direct way of putting Jt than
that. Perhaps you. can tlo it better. If
you can, there is a job waiting for
you in the office ofthe man who first
wrote it because he is a man always,
on the hunt for writers who can say
things with a punch.
There are a good many young men
who try to succeed In lines for which
they are not at all fitted.
Ambitious parents often insist upon
mapping out the life work of their
children when they would do a much
more kindly thing to let the boys and
girls follow their own Inclination.
A tree that is bent Is never so good
as a tree that grows according to na
ture. Thousands of excellent carpenters
have boon spoiled In the making of
poor doctors and the world Is worse
off for the experiments.
Almost every child shows an In
clination toward some special thing.
It enjoys work of a particular kind
when other efforts are drudgery.
The wise parent will seek to find
out what that inclination Is and offer
every aid to the highest endeavor.
A child's mind Is not essentially
different from the mind of a grown
r.p. Both offer resistance to doing
what Is unpleasant and Irksome.
More than that Individualities are
just as distinct and different each
from the other as one kind of matter
(HCers from another.
They have different uses and differ
ent applications. ,
To attempt to drive aj nail with a
sponge would be just as -fruitless, if
not as destructive, as to try to wash,
a window with a hammer.
To try to make a boy who loves me-
uiics and wants to study machin
ery into a professor of Greek is to
misapply his talents and diminish his
Every child should be studied.
There is no greater and no more
interesting process in the world than
the development of the human mind.
The baby with his fist in his eye
Is the seed of the man that is to be.
' Put it in the wrong soil, give It too
much or too little mental food and
water and the final product will be
distorted and twisted.
Put it in the right surroundings?,
give it ns far ns is proper Its way
ami it will grow into a strong and
sturdy plant; a source of joy to itself
and you.
Don't plan too much for your chil
dren. Let them have a little of their own
way in following their inclinations
as to what they shall be and do.
Remember that you cannot get out
of a boy or a man what God Almighty
did not put into him.
