Excerpt from The Girl and the Job
Notice, he says you must not be useless. We don't think any one of you would ever wish to be useless, for all girls when they grow up wish to do something. Fate seems rather hard on some girls, for it compels them to work in the world sooner than they'd wish to, to help bring money home to the family. Even if you are one of the fortunate girls who is not compelled to leave school to go to work, you may be sure of one thing, that the day will come when you'll feel a strong desire to have money earned by your own hands, and to have a job of your own. You'll soon ask yourself, What shall I do and how shall I do it?
Let us allow Ruskin to help us here. There are few things more wonderful to me than that old people never tell young ones how precious their youth is. They sometimes sentimentally regret their own earlier days; sometimes prudently forget them; often foolishly rebuke the young, often more foolishly thwart and restrain; but scarcely ever warn or watch them. Remember.
