Self-consciousness is a foe to greatness in every line of endeavor. -from the chapter "Foes to Success" 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 1 cover: Choosing a vocation The triumphs of enthusiasm What a good appearance will do A fortune in good manners Tact or common sense Success under difficulties Uses of obstacles Observation as a success factor Public speaking The triumphs of common virtues and much more. "History furnishes thousands of examples of men who have seized occasions to accomplish results deemed impossible," Marden notes... and shows us how to seize those occasions, 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.

˹ 23 - WHAT CONSTITUTES A STATE?" An Ode in Imitation of Alcaus WHAT constitutes a State,? Not high-raised battlement or labored mound, Thick wall or moated gate; Not cities proud with spires and turrets crowned; Not bays and broad-armed ports, Where, laughing at the storm, rich navies ride; Not starred and spangled courts, Where low-browed baseness wafts perfume to pride. No ; men, high-minded men...
˹ 17 - There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune ; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows, and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat; And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.
˹ 23 - God, give us men! A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands; Men whom the lust of office does not kill; Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy; Men who possess opinions and a will; Men who have honor; men who will not lie; Men who can stand before a demagogue And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking! Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog In public duty and in private thinking...
˹ 16 - And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me ? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward...
