The Eye Opener
Saturday, June 10, 2017

The man who has the greatest trouble in getting our program is frequently the man who is above the average in education. He tries to open the door to our philosophy of living with his Phi Beta Kappa key. It just won’t fit.

The man who enters our door convinced that all he knows hasn’t been enough to keep him out of difficulty, who is willing to unlearn all those things he knows that are not so and who, in humility, is willing to open his mind and heart to the simple wisdom of those who have succeeded where he has failed, is almost a sure bet.
