Excerpt from Safe and Healthy Living: Building Good Health What does a little child do when he begins to build a tower of blocks? He starts with one block and adds other blocks to it until the tower is complete. In building a stone wall a man starts with one stone. We cannot think of build ing without thinking also of one thing added to another thing - brick laid on brick, one board nailed above another board, one piece of steel fastened to another piece of steel. Growing is a form of building. It is different from the building of a stone wall or a house or a skyscraper only in the materials used. We may, for example, use oak boards to build the framework of a house; but the living oak treefrom which the boards came grew from an acorn. The prin cipal difference between the oak wood used in building a house and the acorn from which an oak tree grows is that one is without life and the other is alive. Growing is build ing something alive out of living material. Living things grow because the material out of which they are built can multiply itself. If we placed an oak board on the ground and left it there for ten or fifteen years, we should not expect to find a whole pile of oak boards when we finally came back. But if we plant one acorn in the ground we can expect some day to have a whole tree bearing acorns. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
