Education Begins At Home

Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don't fail is the last time you try something, and it works. One fails forward toward success.
Even after you've succeeded, the worst stretch often begins. Westinghouse perfected his air brake before he was 30, but had to fight desperately, far into middle age, before he saw it recognized as one of the most important inventions of his time. No one can say how many discoveries have been lost because the discoverers weren't tough enough to stick to their guns and make the world believe.
Young folks must realize that when a pioneer, through toil, thought and sweat, finds out how to make better airplanes or houses or surgical instruments his troubles really begin. They will then be stouter of heart and firmer of purpose when they run into their own inevitable setbacks.
One final practical truth we must point out to our youngsters. All American boys and girls start off with the one real wealth there is - time on their hands. Nature demands eight hours for rest and nourishment; schools or jobs demand another eight; but the third eight hours belong to us to use as we will. Too much spare time is spent in listening to the radio, "cutting a rug," or at the movies.
The course of human events has been profoundly affected by men and women who made good use of their spare time. Anton van Leeuwenhoek, an uneducated Dutchman, cleaned the Delft city hall for a living, but in his leisure he taught himself to grind the little lenses that opened up the wonderful and terrible world of the microbes, probably the greatest discovery in the history of medicine. The Wright brothers made a meager living mending bicycles, but poured their spare time into a winged dream called an "airplane." Unless children are taught to devote some of their energies to preparation for the future and put their spare time to work along practical lines, they'll never be among tomorrow's real pioneers.
