Becoming a Man . . .
I used to think, when I was small, that all I needed to be a man, was just grow up. That was before I knew so much of grown-up males who lack as much that manhood needs as when they were juveniles and dreamed of manly deeds. So I have learned this much, at least, since when my lips began; It takes much more than growing up to be a real man.
“When I grow up and be a man,” you hear the small boy say, as if merely growing large they should be a man someday. But, knowing manhood’s requisites in larger sense, they’ll learn, there’s much besides their body growth for which they ought to yearn. The stalely St. Bernard is more than just a larger pup, it takes more to be a man than just growing up.
Fine breath of vision. self-control, and boundless charity, a gentler tongue, a stronger faith, more perfect clarity. In spirit-vision; patience vast – more patience still, and more; Wisdom to now – and to forget – all that has gone on before; courage to smile through sorrow fill unto unto its brim your cup – More is required, to make a man, than merely growing up.
“ The first rule is, to keep an untroubled spirit… the second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.”
Marcus Aurelius (121–180)
Roman emperor and philosopher
