The art of character building ia the
greatest and raott Important art and
profession In life, so it is a matter of
serious moment how we do this work.
No one of us finds it possible, to like
every person we meet. There are people
so unlovable, so aggressive, so un
pleasant to encounter, that one would be
made of stone who did not recognize
their repellent traits.
Yet were we to set about looking for
some agreeable quality In those an

This, then, should be our work.
The moment we encounter a disagree

for something worth praising.
