Savings of Lifetime

There are two predominant reasons why we save money at all! The first reason is that other people are dependent on us. The second reason we save is for that state called an independent old age.
My savings for my children are to a considerable extent expenditures. I do not mean that I would like to leave them penniless, especially during their dependent years. But if I had to make a choice, I would prefer to leave my children well-filled minds and many happy experiences of youth rather than money. It seems to me that we can be perfectly sure of one thing. Money that is put into a good education isn't going to be lost by any economic changes. I do not mean only four years in college; education begins early, and only a part of it is housed on campuses. Yet parents will save almost hysterically and actually neglect the culture of their children's habits and minds, in the name of providing a higher education that the child is sometimes incompetent to appreciate.
Often you save what you spend. The saving may be by spending money on a home which the children will remember with such affection that it becomes a permanent incentive to decent living. Tuition paid to good schools and colleges is a saving; money put into travel, or tennis rackets or skates or riding habits, may be money saved; money given away is often the best saving. These same things may be extravagances, I know. The test comes in the contribution such expenditures make to an individual's development and whether he is what may be called a going concern.
If one can leave an estate to his children, it is a satisfaction, but it is debatable whether it is good for the ones who receive it. A legacy in trust for a daughter may save her from an unhappy marriage. Or push her into one. A fortune for a son may thwart his natural ability. For myself, I never can understand why any person who has known the joy of earning should want to deny it to anyone else, particularly to those dear to him. Money spent in bringing children up to be strong, intelligent and resourceful is the best saving, both for the individual and for civilization. As far as my children are concerned, there will be a modest competence, if possible.
