We have referred often to the need of balance but not so often to its importance. Yet this can be plainly seen from the picture of a broken- or clipped-winged bird trying to fly on its sound wing alone. It flutters round and round in the air, always returning to the starting point, to its own confusion. This is a picture of a creature without physical balance; a person without psychic balance, which follows completeness of development, whirls about just as vainly in his intellectual, emotional, and active life.
