A professor in Chicago is reported to have given the following test to his pupils.  He told them they were not really educated unless they could say “Yes” to all these questions:
Has your education given you sympathy with all good causes and made you espouse them?
Has it made you public-spirited?
Has it made you a brother to the weak?
Have you learned how to make friends and to keep them?
Do you know what it is to be a friend yourself?
Can you look an honest man or a pure 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 be high-minded and happy in the meaner drudgeries of life?
Do you think washing dishes and hoeing corn just as compatible with high thinking as piano playing or golf?
Are you good for anything to yourself?
Can you be happy alone?
Can you look out on the world and see anything but dollars and cents?
Can you look into a mud puddle by the wayside and see anything in the puddle but mud?
Can you look into the sky at night and see beyond the stars?
Can your soul claim relationship with the Creator?
