Falling behind ne in gifts and talents, and equipments for success and happiness in life, they do t seek success and happiness. They depart from our cheerful general rule. They neither desire the best of everything for themselves, r do the best for themselves, as we are all doing according to our lights. They have t said to themselves in the morning of life, 'I for one will avoid mistakes, and leave society a cheerful example.'
