Scarcely any accomplishments of worth are achieved without hard work.
There are always people who hope to revolutionize some existing condition
through a "happy idea" without expenditure of either mental' on physical
effort. Only geniuses, if any, do things that way. Geniuses are exceedingly
rare. Yet, there are many of us with ability enough to do big things through
diligent, patient, and persistent labor.
Education is a most necessary part in the preparation for doing things.
It also is acquired only through hard and persistent work. Sometimes there
is an inclination in modern education to avoid the hard work by substituting
more interesting and entertaining subjects for the dryland uninteresting ones.
My personal experience leads me to believe that those subjects which at the
time seemed the hardest and most uninteresting have since proved to be the
most valuable. ,
School education can be likened to the learning of the alphabet in the
education of a small child. Learning the alphabet is drudgery, yet without
knowing the alphabet the child cannot read to acquire an education. Like-
wise many subjects taught in school are at the time a drudgery which later
prove a most valuable preparation for reading, understandingly, the more
interesting developments in advanced thought. -
To the boy and girl in high school who wish to be prepared for the
enjoyment of a fuller and more interesting life, I would recommend greater
diligence in acquiring these seemingly uninteresting subjects.,
