The University of Knocks
The good old American institution, "The University of Hard
Knocks," is still functioning as it did back in the day that your
father likes to talk about.
Present educational advantages may have tended to reduce the
number and strength of the knocks, but they haven't reduced them
to zero yet. So if life has been running along smoothly for you,
you may feel certain that just around the corner, after gradu-
ation or before, you are due for a new slant on life.
In this school of lard Knocks you learn things you never other-
wise would learn. Ability to recognize and act upon sound ad-
vice, a proper sense of values and plenty of good common sense
will in a measure cut down the number of bumps you get, but they
will never relieve you from them entirely. You may think you can
get through life without difficulty, but it is just as impossible to get
along without breathing as to go through life without a least a few
good substantial jolts to make you know you are alive. They are
So when yours come, as they will come, meet them bravely. Don't
become discouraged and give up the fight. Remember, you are
only getting what every other man that has ever lived has had to
take. They are a part of life. Hold your temper. Keep your
mouth closed. Hit things hard. Eventually you will come out on
top. If you do, it will be your making. Remember, lie who gives
up is lost.
