Title Ezra Clark, page 040
Description 40 EZRA THOMPSON CLARK He often consulted the mothers concerning domestic problems, and sometimes the older children. An illustra- tion of his method may be cited in his familiar way of hav- ing the children at home when nightfall came. In a friendly voice, he would ask one of the older members of the family : "Don't you think your sister should be here?" If he saw one of his daughters with a group on the street towards evening, he would ask: "Would you like to walk home with me, daughter?" The option was so apparent that one felt no compulsion whatever to follow the sug- gestion. It was really taken as a compliment that he wanted her company home. Often the president of the Church and the apostles were at his home. His sons and daughters were always invited into the front room to meet them. The reminiscent discus- sions by these prominent visitors of their experiences preaching the gospel, etc., made lasting impressions on the minds of Ezra's children. Psychologists tell us that attitudes toward religion and ethics are absorbed from the environment; that ideals are formed by living with people that have them. No work was done on the Sabbath and no one in the Clark homes objected to going to Church on Sunday and attending reg- ularly all the organizations in the ward. Vulgar stories and profane language were foreign to the Clark homes and environment. Ezra T. Clark developed an atmosphere of refinement and culture in his family life. He was a quiet man which may account for many aspects of the home life. He never manifested a critical attitude toward his neigh- bors and was reverential towards the authorities of the Church and everything of a sacred nature.
