The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 19 : Organ for Young Latter-Day Saints; June 1, 1884 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 19: Organ for Young Latter-Day Saints; June 1, 1884 It is fortunate for the youth of these valleys that they are not, through force of circumstances, compelled to follow such a hazardous occupation in order to procure a livelihood. But there are some few, however, in this Territory who, in a fig urative sense, go to sea, contrary to the wishes of their parents. That is, they leave their homes for other parts of the country, in search of fame or fortune, but invariably return in possession of neither one. Or, if they do not go away from home, they depart from the teachings of their parents and act contrary to their wishes. Young men of this class are a source of grief to their parents, and cause them much anxiety and uneasiness respecting their welfare. They cannot enjoy any happiness themselves, for happiness does not attend those who are disobedient. And if they ever obtain wealth or renown by taking such a course, (and it is very unlikely that they will) it will not prove a comfort or satisfaction to them. But, like those who run away and go to sea, they will ever feel that they have taken the wrong course, and the object for which they set out is not to be gained in that way. Children may as well learn by the experience of others as by their own, (for it costs much less) that the best place on earth is home. Do not be dazzled with the glare of foolish imagin etions, so that you cannot see the beauties that surround your own homes. Remember that distance only lends enchantment to unrealities. If you want to find genuine happiness and pleasure, if you wish to gain real honor or wealth, seek them at home.
