Book Excerpt: 
. . .they have risen from the depths of truth, and formed their broad surfaces above the ocean by the minutest accretions of persevering labor. The conceptions of Michael Angelo would have perished like a night's phantasy, had not his industry given them permanence."

Salvini contributes the following to the Century as to his habits of study before he had established himself as a past master of tragedy: "I imposed upon myself a new method of study.

When I took up Othello, I pored over the history of the Venetian Republic and that of the Moorish invasion of Spain. I studied the passions of the Moors, their art of war, their religious beliefs, nor did I overlook the romance of Giraldi Cinthio, in order the better to master that sublime character. I did not concern myself about a superficial study of the words. . . Read More

A great book by Swett Marden

"First of all," replied the boy James A. Garfield, when asked what he meant to be, "I must make myself a man; if I do not succeed in that, I can succeed in nothing."

There is power lying latent everywhere, waiting for the observant eye to discover it.

When I first started reading this book I could not get by the first couple of pages when I had to check as to when it was written because Marden once again describes America as it is today or at least almost as it is today but it WAS WRITTEN IN 1896. This just proves that HISTORY DOES REPEAT ITSE...more

This book shocked me.

I wasn't seeking wisdom exactly. I was merely curious. Is today's advice the same as yesterday? Would authors from a century ago agree with the new breed, or do they proffer other ideas?

The pages contain many quotes and historical examples from all over the world. There's not...more

It seemed to me that this book consists of mainly other people's quotes. It wasn't a bad book and I can see how it motivates, I just wanted more from the author.
