A Vital Concept of Personal Growth
This pamphlet examines the ways an individual may grow and gain maturity as well as the ability to better control all parts of himself to fulfill his personal destiny.
p. 26 -- "On the level of emotional maturity, we are confronted with pressures that may be ill-defined, difficult to examine, and impossible to rationalize. Yet, we do not all feel in the same way, or with the same intensity. Some are enriched by their feelings, and others are impoverished. Emotional activity makes heavy demands upon vitality. Those who do not discipline their feelings come in the end to a state of exhaustion. Children want what they want, and accomplish their ends by subtle tyranny. Small reverses make them miserable. Yet these tragedies are short-lived and are not long remembered. Children resent discipline, but will accept it if it is wisely given."
