"America is said, and not without reason, to be preeminently the home and patron of self-made men... Search where you will, there is no country on the globe where labor is so respected and the laborer so honored, as in this country."
"We may explain success mainly by one word and that word is WORK! WORK!! WORK!!! WORK!!!! Not transient and fitful effort, but patient, enduring, honest, unremitting, and indefatigable work, into which the whole heart is put, and which, in both temporal and spiritual affairs, is the true miracle worker."
