The Test
With one exception, which is noted, the photos on this page were taken in England.
Wales - This little red house is said to be the smallest house in Great Britain.
Known as Quay House, it's now a tourist attraction in Conwy, Wales.  The ten by
six feet structure was used as a residence from the 16th century until 1900.
The Test

A professor is reported to have given the following test to his students.  He told them
that they were not really educated unless they could say yes to all of these questions.

Has your education given you sympathy with all good causes?

Has it made you public-spirited?

Has it made you a brother to the oppressed and downtrodden?

Have you learned how to make friends and to keep them?

Can you look an honest man or woman straight in the eye?

Do you see anything to love in a little child?

Will a lonely dog follow you down the street?

Can you look out on the world and see anything but dollars and cents?

Can you look into the sky at night and see beyond the stars?

A cobbler in Leiden, Holland, made it a habit to attend the public
disputations at the academy, which were debated in Latin.  He was once
asked if he understood that language.  "No," he replied, "but I know who
is in the wrong in the argument by seeing who is angry first."

The world is a difficult world indeed,
And the people are hard to suit,
The man who plays on the violin
Is a bore to the man with a flute.
And I myself have ofen thought,
How much better it would be
If every one of the folks I know
Would only agree with me.
But since they will not, the very best way
To make the world look bright,
Is never to mind what others may say,
But just do what you think is right.
