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.

No ; men, high-minded men...
Página 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.
Página 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...
Página 357 - Then, welcome each rebuff That turns earth's smoothness rough, Each sting that bids nor sit nor stand but go! Be our joys three-parts pain! Strive, and hold cheap the strain; Learn, nor account the pang; dare, never grudge the throe!
Página 134 - But if you happen to have any learning, keep it a profound secret, especially from the men, who generally look with a jealous and malignant eye on a woman of great parts, and a cultivated understanding.
Página 16 - And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me ? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward...
Página 151 - And he gave it for his opinion, that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians put together.
Página 186 - Yours of this date, proposing armistice and appointment of Commissioners to settle terms of capitulation, is just received. No terms except an unconditional and immediate surrender can be accepted. I propose to move immediately upon your works.
Página 265 - If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbor, though he builds his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door.
