'Abdu'l-Baha laid great stress on Education. He said The girl's education

is of more importance today than the boy's, for she is the mother of the

future race. It is the duty of all to look after the children. Those

without children should, if possible, make themselves responsible for the

education of a child.

The condition of the destitute in the country villages as well as in

London impressed 'Abdu'l-Baha greatly. In an earnest talk with the Rector

of a Parish, 'Abdu'l-Baha said: I find England awake; there is spiritual

life here. But your poor are so very poor! This should not be. On the one

hand you have wealth, and great luxury; on the other hand men and women

are living in the extremities of hunger and want. This great contrast of

life is one of the blots on the civilization of this enlightened age.

You must turn attention more earnestly to the betterment of the

conditions of the poor. Do not be satisfied until each one with whom you

are concerned is to you as a member of your family. Regard each one either

as a father, or as a brother, or as a sister, or as a mother, or as a

child. If you can attain to this, your difficulties will vanish, you will

know what to do. This is the teaching of Baha'u'llah.
