It’ll be like a habit to them

20160519-1So if, from the beginning, from their first steps, we keep children away from evil and lead them along the best path, then being devout will be like a habit for them and second nature. They won’t then willingly or easily turn to evil, because their habit will help them to do good deeds. So for us they’ll become more revered than their elders and more useful in public affairs, since, from their youth, they’ll display the virtues of their elders.
