TRUE NOBILITX It 1,1 en Neither In Ancewtrnl Blood, Nor In Acquired Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
TRUE NOBILITX It 1,1 en Neither In Ancewtrnl Blood, Nor In Acquired Wealth. While human nature remains there will be ambition in the human mind. The desire to excel, to outrank others, lies at the foundation of all progress, of all development, of mind as well as of wealth. To decry ambition is shortsighted. for to eliminate it means stagnation in the whole race. Providence has made the attempt as impossible as it would be destructive. hike all human impulses, ambitioi may take a right course and may not. The vital question is in what does an individual seek to outrank others'* Leaving out of the question the desire of the pugilist to excel in brute force, or of the criminal to surpass in vice, there are other false standards of excellence in force among men.

Like Some Critic*. Postmaster General Meyer, at a dinner in Washington, was advocating postal banks. “These banks,” he said, “have so many good points and so few bad ones that they who find fault with them have to exaggerate and dwell on their defects like an old librarian I used to know. This librarian was very strict and censorious. Once, when I was a boy, I returned a volume of Scott to him. He. as usual, looked closely into the book’s condition before marking it off on my card. “ ‘Page SO,’ he said, glaring at me over his spectacles, ‘a hole.’ Then he turned the leaf. ‘Page 90,’ he added ‘mother hole.’ ”
