What a Young Woman Ought to Know (1913)
WHEN I see you with your young girl friends, when I look into your bright faces and listen to your merry laughter and your girlish chatter, I wonder if any one of you understands how much you are worth. Now you may say, "I haven; t any money in the bank, I have no houses or land, I am worth nothing," but that would only be detailing what you pos sess. It is not what you possess but what you are that determines what you are worth. One may possess much wealth and be worth very little. I was reading the other day that the first great lesson for a young man to learn, the first fact to realize, is that he is of some importance; that upon his wisdom, energy and faithfulness all else depends, and that the world cannot get along without him. Now if this is true of young men, I do not see why it is not equally true of young women.
