No life without Sun
Abraham Lincon came from a poor family and learn't a lot on his own. I don't know the year in which it was written, probably early 1800s but it sounds far more truthful and applicable in present day world. The beautiful letter reflects the maturity of a honest upright father who has seen the world and how he would like his son to be treated by the teacher and the education to be imparted.
Of the many phrases in the letter, I liked the one 10 cents earned is far more valuable that 1 dollar found, how to lose gracefully and lastly to sell his brain to the highest bidder but never put a tag on his heart and soul.
Honesty is the best policy.
