Excerpt from Talks With Boys and Girls, or Wisdom Better Than Gold

These addresses have all been delivered to large congrega tions of young people between the ages of ten and eighteen years. One who has not tried it can hardly understand how difficult it is to say things which shall interest alike minds so near the beginning and the end of school-life. The sim ple stories which arrest and keep the attention of young children are unsuited to those on the verge of maturity, and didactic statements, however logical in arrangement and clear in expression, addressed to the more cultivated, go quite over the heads of the others.
