(hg Closing The Chapter
Sometimes I think the greatest fear men have is not
of de^tUirbr poverty, ori disaster. It is something new. Take
all tb£lohanges there are' today. And the sad talk in certain
dltiarrers '<_f .jtjie end of..an^era. True,"the changes are of
choice.-^ndthert! are many jh'apipy' people, But the majority
of the'haiipy tones are- more interested in putting, them-
s^Iy!|^'^in. pifter people's placed—or jobs—not in facing the
dnajlenge of:. something new.
K^ntty j hteai. dL a iriah say to a young relative who
was.w^aflirig'the fact that when he went.back to his college; a^;. the end of five years, lie found it all-strange—"That
chapter in your life was fine while it lasted. But that chapter is over. Uton't be afraid to close it."
And I thought how often—how far poo often—we be-
wailr the closing of a chapter. We waste precious time on
Whatsis p&st: W£'are fraid to close the chapter.
Each period in our life—iJer_K>nal as well as national—
is..a chapter in the WHOLE book. Why be afraid to go on
tb the next chapter? Why should we asstime it will be worse
than ■'the last? Why not expect it to be better, because- by
the reading,tor, living of. the ..previous ones we are more
ready?., better prepared to make the most of the new*? , •
Remember when: you went. to school' the ' list of ques-
tipnsvtUere'Were.at the end oif each chapter, and, how you
\y£lrfe^expected to. know-the answers before #ou went on; to
the'itest? Well, that is a lot.Jike life. We "are supposed to
