Example text

The system provides for instruction in almost any field excepting human conduct. In some schools they even teach you how to use a camera and how to collect stamps, but how to live a free man’s life is left to latchkey parents and the older gang around the block. They have bolted the front gate against God and religion, but the Devil sneaks in through the back door. EGOCENTRICITY Selflessness is the highest form of selfishness. EGOTISM The most difficult person to make friends with is yourself. ELOQUENCE Is these days a weapon, not a virtue.

BORE No man is boring who speaks of what troubles him. BORROWING The lender may lose a friend but the indifferent will never have one. BRAINPOWER Only a fraction of mankind’s mental capacity is being used. The overwhelming bulk of the world’s brainpower perishes unused because of totalitarian executions or war activities, because of a poverty-stunted literacy among seven-tenths of the population, and finally because of premature assignment to dulling labor. We are running the world on one cylinder instead of ten.

Man, so imperfect in body and mind, demands perfection of all things in his social and economic structure. ECONOMY He who skimps on the seed will raise a poor harvest. EDUCATION Will eliminate foolishness but not deviltry. God has been separated from our schools; that may be all right, but the Devil was left there and that is not fair. The Devil of prejudice, arrogance, hatred, envy, home-grown superstition, and success-greed hovers over the school benches. You can’t exorcise the Devil by looking the other way.
