Letter of June 6, 1941

The responsibility of young believers is very great, as they must not only fit themselves to inherit the work of the older Baha’is and carry on the affairs of the Cause in general, but the world which lies ahead of them—as promised by Baha’u’llah—will be a world chastened by its sufferings, ready to listen to His Divine Message at last; and consequently a very high character will be expected of the exponents of such a religion. To deepen their knowledge, to perfect themselves in the Baha’i 180 standards of virtue and upright conduct, should be the paramount duty of every young Baha’i.
