But they began first to learn their letters, and then to spell and read, and so on, learning one thing at a time. 5. If you were going up a mountain, you would not think of trying to step from the bottom to the top, at once; but you would move on, step by step, till you reached the top. 6. So you must do, if you would climb up the hill, called Science. You must first learn to read and spell well, then you can learn to write, and can study grammar, and many other useful things. 7. Sometimes little boys and girls say, "I do not see the use of learning this lesson." But they should never say so; for, if they do not, at first, see the use of it, they will when they have learned it. 8. When a large, stone house is to be built, some men dig the stones from the quarry, and others hew them into proper shapes. 9. Now, if these men should stop their work, because they do not know where each stone is to be placed in the house, it would never be built. 10. So, if you cease trying to learn your lessons, because you can not, at first, see their use, you will never become wise. 11. But, if you are careful, each day of your life, to learn something new and useful, you will become wise and good, and gain the esteem of all. LESSON XLUX Goob-nat' Ur Ed, mild; kind.
