MEN OF INVENTION AND INDUSTRY

by Samuel Smiles



"Men there have been, ignorant of letters; without art, without
eloquence; who yet had the wisdom to devise and the courage to
perform that which they lacked language to explain.  Such men
have worked the deliverance of nations and their own greatness. 
Their hearts are their books; events are their tutors; great
actions are their eloquence."--MACAULAY.
