THE CHOICE OF A PROFESSION.
The chosen profession may be from thousands of duties near at hand, but it must always be a duty. The man must decide not on "what I like," but "in what will I be the most useful." Nor must any liberal profession be considered over-crowded. In every one, as Webster so well said of his own, there is room higher up. And certainly, Mr. Hale continued, we can declare within the secresy of this chapel, that there is always room for Harvard men. Skill is needed on every side - the skill that is possessed by graduates of our colleges. Probably in no age of our country's history, in education of the young, was so deserving of the title "golden" as when Webster, and Choate, and the many great men of that time devoted their time after college to the teaching of the young. Such men are needed now. As the laws of choice of a profession Mr. Hale named first to select one vocation. An avocation was also well to have and necessary, but it must be an avocation. Every man has his ideal life to lead, the object of his day dreams, and this is the answer to his question, what profession to choose, and what life to lead.
