EIGHTEENTH TALK 375 but there can be no possible reason why each man may not follow the way which he finds to be best for himself, the path which seems to him the most •direct ; ami all that is needed from tlie other man is that lie should recognise flu; fact. Each should say: u 1 prefer my path, hut I am perfecty willing that every other man should have the same ri^ht, that he also should take the path which seems the best to him/' That is a common-sense statement which does not seem much to ^rant, and vet very few will credit it. They all feel that what is best for them must he best for others. Yon must learn the wid<'r attitude—that there are many pathSy and that they all lead equally to tlie summit of the mountain, and that each man should l)e left, to take that which is nearest to him. You should not havo even the slightest feeling in your heart that your path would he better for him, but should leave him in perfect peace to take In's own way.
