Natural on your situation

In a letter written June

All this may sound very small to us, but to a youth who had been reared in such straitened circumstances as Daniel it seemed like a liberal competence. It required some decision and boldness to reject this certainly for the uncertain prospects of a young lawyer, before whom lay at the first a period of poverty and struggle. Then it must be added that Daniel was modest, and was far from believing that he was endowed with extraordinary talent. It is very probable that more than half the young men who graduate from our law schools to-day have a higher opinion of their abilities than Daniel Webster at the age of twenty. To illustrate his struggles I quote from a letter written at this time.

What shall I do? Shall I say, ‘Yes, gentlemen,’ and sit down here to spend my days in a kind of comfortable privacy, or shall I relinquish these prospects, and enter into a profession where my feelings will be constantly harrowed by objects either of dishonesty or misfortune; where my living must be squeezed from penury (for rich folks seldom go to law), and my moral principle be continually at hazard? I agree with you that the law is well calculated to draw forth the powers of the mind, but what are its effects on the heart? are they equally propitious? Does it inspire benevolence and awake tenderness; or does it, by a frequent repetition of wretched objects, blunt sensibility and stifle the still, small voice of mercy?

The talent with which Heaven has intrusted me is small, very small; yet I feel responsible for the use of it, and am not willing to pervert it to purposes reproachful or unjust, or to hide it, like the slothful servant, in a napkin.

On the whole, I imagine I shall make one more trial (of the law) in the ensuing autumn. If I prosecute the profession, I pray God to fortify me against its temptations. To the winds I dismiss those light hopes of eminence which ambition inspired and vanity fostered. To be ‘honest, to be capable, to be faithful’ to my client and my conscience. I believe you, my worthy boy, when you tell me what are your intentions. I have long known and long loved the honesty of your heart. But let us not rely too much on ourselves; let us look to some less fallible guide to direct us among the temptations that surround us.”

In a letter written June 4, 1802, Mr. Webster refers to his indecision as to a career.
Now Hope leans forward on Life’s slender line,
Shows me a lawyer, doctor or divine;
Ardent springs forward to the distant goal,
But indecision clogs the eager soul.
Heaven bless my friend, and when he marks his way,
And takes his bearings o’er life’s troubled sea,
In that important moment may he find
Choice and his friends and duty all combined.”

I ought to stay

Daniel’s path seemed to lie plain before him. He was a college student, receiving and using such advantages as Dartmouth could give him. At nineteen he would be a graduate, and well qualified to commence a professional course. So far as he was concerned Daniel felt that he had reason to congratulate himself. But there was another for whom he began to feel solicitude Cambridge exam
.

Ezekiel Webster was nearly two years older than Daniel, and like him possessed uncommon natural gifts. A strong affection had united the two brothers from their earliest years. There was no reason, apart from Judge Webster’s poverty, why Ezekiel, as well as his younger brother, should not be allowed a college education. But the father hesitated long before he ventured to offer Daniel the education which he longed to give him, and to raise the necessary money was obliged to mortgage his humble house. His plan for Ezekiel was that he should remain at home and carry on the farm. As he grew older, and hard work had made him in his own words old before his time,” he felt that it would be a relief to have a son like Ezekiel to take the burden from his shoulders, and keep up the farm. But Ezekiel scarcely more than Daniel had a vocation for farming. He too had a thirst for learning, and felt that a farmer’s life would be uncongenial. It is natural that he should have felt dissatisfied with his prospects, and that the claims of Duty which he recognized should nevertheless have seemed to him difficult to obey.

Such was the state of feeling when Daniel came home on a vacation. To him Ezekiel revealed his thoughts and inward struggles nu skin

I ought to stay, Daniel,” he said; now that you are away father needs me more than ever, but I can’t bear the idea of growing up in ignorance, with no work more elevating than working on the farm.”

Daniel was touched. He could see how unequal their lots were likely to be. While he might be a successful lawyer, his favorite brother, whose talents he considered to equal his own, would have to toil on the barren acres of their paternal farm nu skin

I can’t bear the idea, either, Zeke,” he answered.

He remained annoyed with himself until he knowing what he really wanted was actually quite natural. We can never know what to want because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.


There is no means of testing which decision is better because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself?

Who can say who is right and who is wrong? There is no right and wrong, the concept of people much had differences. When we Business Private Networkwere so young, so we ripen in advance, but later we have grown up, no longer young frivolous, then slowly recall sour youth, about the time of scattered, barren pain, sadness and secret, mouth unconsciously slowly raised.

See, the children how good ah! Each child will become an adult so exclamation, they were young we found that shadow, so everyone's youth had domineering, dazed and confused.

Youth, like fireworks, beautiful and short, people by surprise. Youth, bloom in the wild life journey, like a exotic flower can not square thing. Youth is like a fast relaxation and train, leaving only a shrill whistle in the empty mountains circled resound.

How to take the youth, the initial good frames, but the world is so big that we cannot see its appearance, young, how do we choose that this does not belong to our grief? Guo Jingming said: "youth is a hair restoration beautiful injury. If sorrow inadvertently broke into our hearts, so don't panic, do not be afraid, please face it with a smile, that is the factors of growth of the inevitable, only accept it, you will grow up, will become strong and mature.

If you are young, then please do not hesitate at the crossroads of confusion, please find their own direction, the courage to face life. If sad, find a no one corner, buried sadly there, give it a smile, then turned and left. Don't be sentimental, youth is not the key, it will not be suspended over it again.

The youth, please cherish, if you meet, please smile.

Sit in the time of the other side, the past youth - slowly, once again as if through the youth.

The southern suburbs of Seattle


Five people were injured in a shooting outside a bar in the suburbs south of Seattle early Sunday morning, according to the King County sheriff's office.

King County detectives said one person suffered life-threatening injuries and has been taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

The shooting in Skyway happened around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

KOMO-TV reported that both men and women were hit. Two others were treated for injuries in nearby hospitals, including one person with only minor wounds.

Details about the shooting were still vague midday because the victims were not cooperating with police, according to Sgt. D.B. Gates.

"Our understanding is that it happened in the parking lot," Gates said. "The club was either closing or had closed. A lot of people were milling around the parking lot, and that's when the shots were heard."

Evidence gathered at the scene indicates that at least two guns were used in the shooting, and investigators weren't yet sure if the shooters were in a car or on foot.

"It's absolutely a possibility that this is gang related, and that may be why no one really wants to tell us what's going on," Gates said.

Detectives were seeking witnesses and surveillance video from nearby businesses.

Other shootings happened in this area in 2010 and 2008.

Further details about the shooting and the conditions of those injured were not immediately available.
