From the Publisher

FROM "THE CARE AND CULTURE OF MEN":  * The flag of freedom can never float over a nation of dead heads. 
* The boys who are SENT to college often do no amount to much.
From the boys who GO to college come the leaders of the future.
* In a free country there can be but one poor man – the man without a purpose.
* You cannot fasten a two-thousand-dollar education upon a fifty-cent boy.
* All professions are crowded in America but the crowd is around the bottom of the ladder.
* The world turns aside to let any man pass who knows whither he is going.
* Undeserved help brings the germs of idleness.
The man who receives a windfall forever watches the wind.
* It is better that a people should suffer with the remedy in their hands than that they should be protected by some power not of themselves.
* That which endures is that which brings out the higher potentialities of themselves.
* In popular government ignorance has the same right to be represented as wisdom.
