THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY.
Success is usually a manifestation of forethought and enterprise, rather than an earnest of natural superiority. Ability of some sort is latent in everyone. All normal, healthy men are endowed with peculiar qualities which equip them for the competent pursuit of peculiar vocations. But few endeavour to place themselves properly, and continue to follow the first occupation upon which they chance.
Ambition is the expression of person-ality—-evidence of man's desire ,to individualise himself. Often originating in resentment against authority, it is a declaraton of independence which harnesses power to purpose—translates vague talents to definite .tasks and leads to the selection of congenial and therefore enthusiastically performed labours.
