"No vision more bright"

[Written Especially for Young People]

There comes a time for every young person when he must take stock of himself and decide what he is to make of his life. For those who know and practice Christian Science this decision comes naturally, and they are the happy ones; for to have a high goal steadily before one is to be blessed and protected. For him who walks in the light of Truth, his hand in his Father's, temptations are more easily overcome. He is not turned aside by pleas of popularity or empty amusement. He has a treasure that is real and a joy that none can take away. The following words from a poem by Mary Baker Eddy which is found on page 354 of "Miscellaneous Writings" might well apply to him:

"No tear dims his eye, nor his pinions lose power
To gaze on the lark in her emerald bower—
Whenever he soareth to fashion his nest,
No vision more bright than the dream in his breast."
