"The object of the book briefly is, to re-inculcate old-fashioned but wholesome lessons--which perhaps can not be too often urged--that youth must work in order to enjoy--that nothing creditable can be accomplished without application and diligence--that the student must not be daunted by difficulties, but conquer them by patience and perseverance--and that, above all, he must seek elevation of character, without which capacity is worthless and worldly success is naught. If the author has not succeeded in illustrating these lessons, he can only say that he has failed in his object"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
