If I were a boy again,I would practise perseverance more often,and never give
up a thing because it was hard or inconvenient.If we want light,we must conquer
darkness.Perseverance can sometimes equal genius in its results.“There are only
two creatures,”says a proverb;“who can surmount the pyramids-the eagle and the
If I were a boy again,I would school myself into a habit of attention .I
would let nothing come between me and the subject in hand.I would remember that
a good skater never tries to skate in two directions at once.The habit of
attention becomes part of our life,if we begin early enough.
I often hear grown-up people say,“I could not fix my attention on the lecture
or book,although I wished to do so,”and the reason is,the habit was not formed
If I were to live my life over again,I would pay more attention to the
cultivation of the memory.I would strengthen that faculty by every possible
means, and,on every possible occasion.It takes a little hard work at first to
remember things accurately;but memory soon helps itself,and gives very little
trouble. It only needs early cultivation to become a power.
If I were a boy again, I would cultivate courage. Nothing is so mild and

look doubtful on it,you will get a similar look in return.Inner sunshine warms
not only the heart of the owner,but of all that come in contact with it.
Who shuts love out,in turn shall be shut from love.
If I were a boy again,I would school myself to say “No”oftener.I might write
pages on the importance of learning very early in life to gain that point where
a young boy can stand erect,and decline doing an unworthy act because it is
If I were a boy again,I would demand of myself more courtesy towards my
companions and friends,and indeed towards strangers as well.The smallest
courtesies along the rough roads of life are like the little birds that sing to
us all winter long,and make that season of ice and snow more
endurable.Finally,instead of trying hard to be happy,as if that were the sole
purpose of life,I would,if I were a boy again,try still harder to make others
