Excerpt from Ethics of Success

The lives of great men are an inspiration to the young. Tact, industry, perseverance, honesty, self-reliance, and the other virtues indispensable to success are incarnated in them. They are lived, thereby becoming real things instead of idealities or speculation. Abstractions and mere sentiment impress youth feebly, in comparison with truths which men illustrate by noble deeds. By studying these, the young discover a secret of power, and learn the value of the virtues by seeing the men who practiced them. Human experience invests certain elements of character with a sort of personality; and personality itself is power.

There is no more profitable study for the young than the study of men and women who made things happen. Emerson said, "There is properly no history - only biography." If this be true, acquaintance with the great and good who made history must be doubly profitable to the young.

The incitement of a great cause or principle also stimulates youth to nobler purposes. Great men and women represent great things; as commerce, art science, philanthropy, liberty, education and religion.
