59.   THE CHOICE OF A LIFE WORK
By the time a boy or girl gets to the middle of high school the question of what he is going to do in the world is the most exciting and important of any that he thinks about. These chapters give some of the most sensible and suggestive pointers by those who know that we could gather, and they are bound to help you.

60.    PICTURES WE LEARN TO LOVE
After a young man or woman leaves home for his life work he finds that among the most dearly cherished memories are the pictures that used to hang on the home-walls. If we can gather about us in youth paintings and illustrations that tell beautiful stories or recall wonderful vistas, we carry them with us as long as we live. The Treasury is such a picture-gallery.
