A few good books, Inspiration

Test of strength

Men who came up “the hard way” usually try to make things as easy as possible for their children, thus denying them the discipline of struggle and self-establishment that worked so well in their own cases. Such parents reminded me of the kindhearted amateur who raised butterflies as hobby. He was so touched by the difficulties they had in emerging from the cocoon that once, out of mistaken kindness, he split the cocoon with his thumb so that the tiny inmate would escape without struggle. The butterfly was never able to use its wings.
