Excerpt from Stepping Stones to Manhood: A Book of Inspiration for Boys and Young Men
Who can value the worth of a boy? Like Moses, Luther, or Lincoln, he might rise to bless a nation. Boyhood is the blossom that ripens into manhood. It is the formative period of one's character. Said Lord Collingwood to a young friend, You must establish a' character before you are twenty-five that will serve you all life. The building of such is the greatest earthly task, and he is the greatest man who chooses right with the most invincible resolution, who resists the sor est temptation from within and without, who is most fearless under menaces and frowns, whose reliance on truth, on virtue, and on God, is most unfaltering.
