Lives of Poor Boys Who Became Famous

release date: Jul 20, 2022
Lives of Poor Boys Who Became Famous
These characters have been chosen from various countries and from varied professions, so that the youth who read this book may see that poverty is no barrier to success. It usually develops ambition, and nerves people to action. Life at best has much of struggle, and we need to be cheered and stimulated by the careers of those who have overcome obstacles. If Lincoln and Garfield, both farmer-boys, could come to the Presidency, then there is a chance for other farmer-boys. If Ezra Cornell, a mechanic, could become the president of great telegraph companies, and leave millions to a university, then other mechanics can come to fame. If Sir Titus Salt, working and sorting wool in a factory at nineteen, could build one of the model towns of the world for his thousands of workingmen, then there is encouragement and inspiration for other toilers in factories. These lives show that without work and will no great things are achieved.

Famous American Statesmen, published in 1888, is a collection of 10 biographical sketches of America's most famous statesmen.

Famous Leaders Among Women (Classic Reprint)

release date: Nov 08, 2016
Famous Leaders Among Women (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Famous Leaders Among Women Phillips brooks said in an address before the Phillips Exeter Academy in 1893, Since the noblest life on earth is always human life, the literature which deals with human life must always be the noblest liter ature. And since the individual human life must always have a distinctness and interest which cannot belong to any of the groups of human lives, biography must always have a charm which no other kind of history can rival. I believe fully that the intrinsic life of any human being is so interesting, that if it can be simply and sympathetically put in words, it will be legitimately interesting to other men. I trust that the lives here sketched may be found interesting. Madame de Maintenon, with neither beauty nor youth, but with great intellectual power, was able to win and keep the love of a fickle king.
