    DEVOTIONALS


    “It is extremely difficult to teach the individual and refine his character once puberty is passed. By then, as experience hath shown, even if every effort be exerted to modify some tendency of his, it all availeth nothing. He may, perhaps, improve somewhat; but let a few days pass and he forgetteh, and turneth backwards to his habitual condition and accustomed ways”

    ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
