A NOBLE LIFE

 

By Mary C. Haskett

 

1919

 

 

PREFACE

 

The subject-matter of this little book is intended as a guide to the young through the adolescent period, when the centrifugal force, a tendency to fly off from the paths of rectitude,

is the strongest in life. To say anything strictly new would be impossible. In the words of the

poet:

 

We have gathered posies from other menís flowers;

Nothing but the thread that binds them is ours.

 

It is my hope to awaken the slumbering genius in the youth, to stimulate and impel them to noble thoughts and actions, and to lead them on to honor, success, and happiness.

May the blessings of the dear Lord rest on the boys and girls that live a good, true, pure, noble life. They are a blessing to any home, community, state, or nation.

 

The Author.
