Asheville (N. C.) Citizen

The man most needed by the business world to-day is the one who brings with him a well-poised mental equipment, moral courage, and the ability quickly to discern and choose the right from the wrong; and he who is alert is learning more and more that right thinking makes right living and right living means success; that man is not bound by the iron shackles of heredity or environment, but that he is free to choose the right, and that if he will use the Divine power offered him he can live it. Young man, when you are tempted to do wrong hold steadfastly to the thought that you are not the slave of evil, passion, and appetite; that man is made in the image and likeness of God, and you are placed here to have dominion over the earth and all things therein, if your motives and aims are for the glory of your creator and the good of your fellow-men. If you make this your mission in life, all other things necessary for your happiness and success will certainly be within your reach.
