Abraham Lincoln writes to the Headmaster of his son's school"He will have to learn, I know, that all men are not just, all men are not true. But teach him also thatfor every scoundrel, there is a hero and that for every selfish politician, there is a dedicatedleader. Steer him away from envy, if you can, teach him the secret of quiet laughter... Teach him,if you can , the wonder of books... but also give him quiet time to ponder over the eternal mysteryof birds in the sky, bees in the sun, and flowers on a green hillside.""In school, teach him that it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat... Teach him to have faith inhis own ideas, even if everyone tell him they are wrong... Teach him to be gentle with gentlepeople, and though with the tough. Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd wheneveryone is getting on the bandwagon. Teach him to listen to all men, but teach him also to filterall he has heard on the screen of truth, and take on the good that comes through it.""Teach him, if you can, how to laugh when he is sad... teach him there is no shame in tears.Teach him to scoff at cynics, and to beware of too much sweetness... Teach him to sell his brawnand brain to the highest bidders, but never to put a tag on his heart and soul. Teach him to closehis ears to the howling mob... and to stand and fight if he thinks he's right.""Teach him gently, but do not cuddle him, because only the test of fire makes fine steel. Let himhave the courage to be impatient... Let him have the patience to be brave. Teach him always tohave sublime faith in himself because then he will always have sublime faith in mankind."quesions-?
