Notes, topics or text 

"I recently asked my children this question: 'If you could persuade the wisest men and women in the world to write a book for you, what would you have them write about?' 'About the earth, the sun and the stars; do they believe in God; and how can we stop people from fighting each other.' This was the gist of their reply."

"Please write your frank opinions on the general subject 'The Approach to Living' with special emphasis on themes like 'Is life worth living?' 'Should I conform?' 'Freedom of thought' 'How to take criticism and disappointment' 'The individual in society' 'Books that are really worth reading' 'Ideas on which to build'. All contributions will be compiled into book form for subsequent publication...."
