At that moment is born the inspiration, followed by the earnest purpose, to go and do likewise. The loftier his model, the higher his aim, the more strongly is the lad vitalized, energized, uplifted.On the other hand nothing can so deaden a boys ambition, as the belief that the object of his admiration lived and fought and achieved in an atmosphere unshared by him, and possessed abilities and opportunities he is denied.

With such a belief the youth stumbles through year after year of his school career with no realization of the joy of building stone by stone the foundation of an impregnable life-structure.

To him remain unseen the possibilities which may be grasped and opened up through the study of happily written biographies of world-toilers who had blood and brawn and fire, who being dead yet speak because of the inherent power of a commanding personality, a mighty will, and a never dying spirit.

Why is this so?Primarily, because the majority of biographies have been written for mature minds, and deal with those aspects of their subjects public career which appeal only to adult students.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
