Remember that you cannot tell what may come to you in the future... and you cannot afford to take chances upon having anything in your history which can come up to embarrass you or to keep you back. -from the chapter "The Power of Purity" A phenomenal bestseller when it was first published in 1894 and greatly expanded, by popular demand, to two volumes in 1911, Orison Swett Marden's Pushing to the Front is a classic of the literature of personal motivation that remains startling relevant today. Marden, a forerunner of Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen R.Covey and Anthony Robbins, explores a wide range of issues that hold us back from success in all arenas of our lives. Chapters in Volume 2 cover: The man with an idea The will and the way The might of little things Expect great things of yourself The habit of happiness The power of suggestion The curse of worry Why some succeed and others fail and much more. "Nearly all great men, those who have towered high above their fellows, have been remarkable above all things else for their energy of will," Marden notes... and shows us how to cultivate our energy of will, too. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Marden's Cheerfulness as a Life Power. American writer and editor ORISON SWETT MARDEN (1850-1924) was born in New England and studied at Boston University and Andover Theological Seminary. In 1897, he founded Success Magazine.

第 475 頁 - Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world, Like a Colossus ; and we petty men Walk under his huge legs, and peep about To find ourselves dishonourable graves. Men at some time are masters of their fates : The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.
第 476 頁 - Who breaks his birth's invidious bar, And grasps the skirts of happy chance, And breasts the blows of circumstance, And grapples with his evil star; Who makes by force his merit known And lives to clutch the golden keys, To mould a mighty state's decrees, And shape the whisper of the throne; And moving up from high to higher, Becomes on Fortune's crowning slope The pillar of a people's hope, The centre of a world's desire...
