The True Standard
If it were always possible for the children to have right standards given them, the results actually attained in after years would be so very different from ordinary experience as to contradict the popular expectation awakened; but it is sadly true that in youth, even in childhood, the acquirement of wealth and position is continually held before thought as the goal of endeavor. Steady effort is needed to attain success in any direction, and in the race of life the workers soon begin to show an advantage over the idlers or dreamers, and are placed in the opinion of their fellows on the side of success, but when the days of youth are over, and character is, so to speak, crystallized, it is found that something is wrong, for the possession of wealth and fame does not satisfy either the heart or the intellect, much less the higher nature.
It does not follow, by any means, that the unsuccessful man, from this material point of view, is any happier, since it is quite likely that he may have missed his opportunities, and done even less in the development of character than the successful.
