A man is not so old as long as he takes lively interest in the
on-going of the world around him. If he finds causes which call
forth his earnest support; if he bears the evidence of high purpose
in his conduct; if he enjoys to sit with old friends at his table;
if he is eyes to the blind and feet to the lame and a father to
the poor; if confidence and joy animates him, that man is not old,
though his years exceed four score. Of such a one it can be said,
"Though the outer man perish, yet the inner man is renewed,
day by day." Hilham Academy The school at Fisk, Academy, Hilham,
