I have been astounded by the posts in this thread and others. I work at a small law office....I printed this thread and showed them it to give them an indication of some of the people entering the legal profession. Needless to say, their responses were negative. I can't explain to you all how poorly your posts come across....the attitude that some people have is truly astounding. The dad that started this thread is no diffferent than your fathers', he is concerned about his child, and decided to post on this forum. For that, he and his daughter deserve to be vilified?
Advice: this whole game is all a means to an end anyway....Be a good person first.
THE MAN IN THE GLASS:
"When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
and the world makes you king for a day,
just go to the mirror and look at yourself,
and see what that man has to say.
For it isn't your father or mother or wife
who's judgement upon you must pass;
the fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people may think you're a straight-shootin chum
and call you a wonderful guy,
but the man in the glass says you're only a bum,
if you can't look him straight in the eye.
He's the fellow to please, nevermind all the rest
for he's with you clear up to the end,
and you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
if the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
and get pats on the back as you pass,
but your final reward will be heartache and tears,
IF YOU"VE CHEATED THE MAN IN THE GLASS.
