Russ: Mom says you’re having a slumber party next Saturday. Irene: I’m just having a few friends over a sleepover and it’s none of your business. Russ: Don’t be like that. How many people did you invite? Irene: I’m not telling you anything. I know what you’re thinking. You want to pull pranks on us. Russ: No, I don’t. I just want to know how many giggling girls in sleeping bags I’ll have to step over to get to the kitchen. Irene: You’re not going to get anything out of me. I can see right through you. Russ: Are you going to wear your pajamas with feet? Irene: Don’t be stupid! I haven’t worn those since I was six! Russ: Can I be part of the pillow fight? Irene: No way! You’re not invited! Russ: But you’re going to stay up all night and watch movies, aren’t you? I want to do that, too. Irene: You’d better stop teasing me or I’m going to tell Mom. Russ: I’m not doing anything. I’m only trying to help you plan your party. Irene: Right! You want to help me? It’s more like you want to wreck my party. Russ: Ah, you’ve hurt my feelings. Irene: I doubt it. Now leave me alone! 8577

Andre: Mom, I can't believe I got stuck with Matt as my lab partner in school. Josephine: Matt? Do I know Matt? Andre: He lives down the street. He's Mr. and Mrs. Kemp's son. He's a total airhead. Josephine: Oh, I remember him. He was at your birthday party. Andre: Yeah, when I was nine years old! That guy is so dense! Josephine: Matt was always considered a gifted child. He seemed bright and perceptive, and his parents thought he'd go far. Andre: If you ask me, he's not all there. Every time I look over at him in class, he's staring off into space. He doesn't seem like the kind who's very quick on the uptake. Josephine: You know, some very smart people can seem spacey to the rest of us. Maybe he's just thinking when he stares off into space. Andre: Maybe. All I know is that my science grade is riding on how we do in the lab, so I hope he shapes up. Josephine: I'm sure he will. And even if he doesn't, you're clever enough to still do well in the class. Andre: Thanks, Mom, but I wouldn't bet on it! 3191

Self-control is essential to happiness and usefulness. It is the master of all the virtues,and has its root in self-respect. Let a man yield to his impulses and passions, and from that moment he gives up his moral freedom.It is the self-discipline of a man that enables him to pursue success with superior diligence and sobriety.Many of the great characters in history illustrate this trait. In ordinary life the application is the same.He who would lead must first command himself. The time of test is when everybody is excited or angry,then the well-balanced mind comes to the front.There is a very special demand the cultivation of his trait at present.The young men who rush into business with no good education or drill will do poor and feverish work.Endurance is a much better test of character than act of heroism.A fair amount of self-examination is good. Self-knowledge is a preface to self-control. Too much self-inspection leads to morbidness; too little conducts to careless and hasty action. There are two things which will surely strengthen our self-control. One is attention to conscience; the other is a spirit of good will.The man who would succeed in any great undertaking must hold all his faculties under perfect control; they must be disciplined and drilled until they quickly and cheerfully obey the will. 365
