Abstract: The future of man is generally based on his childhood's circumstances; so if a fortunate child is born to good and generous parents he has the possibility of growing up to be a good, active and resourceful man, unless bad company corrupts him. There will be few obstacles for him in life and this could make of him a superficial man of medium culture. On the contrary, a thirteen-year old boy, who at such tender age loses his father and finds himself with a family: a mother, two sisters and two brothers, and moreover penniless as all the money had to be spent during his father's illness, he will soon learn what responsibility is and he will endeavour to advance in wisdom and to merit the approval of those that procure work for him, doing his best to establish himself on solid basis. And this is exactly what happened to George Borg, who at the age of thirteen had to shoulder, together with his mother, full responsibility to bring up and maintain himself and his family.
