ELBERT HUBBARD
American soap manufacturer, publisher, writer and lecturer
(1856 - 1915)

An ounce of performance is worth more than a pound of preachment.
      - [Action]

Many a man's reputation would not know his character if they met on the street.
      - [Reputation]

Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
      - [Action]

The actual fact is that in this day Opportunity not only knocks at your door but is playing an anvil chorus on every man's door, and then lays for the owner around the corner with a club. The world is in sore need of men who can do things. Indeed, cases can easily be recalled by every one where Opportunity actually smashed in the door and collared her candidate and dragged him forth to success. These cases are exceptional, usually you have to meet Opportunity half-way. But the only place where you can get away from Opportunity is to lie down and die. Opportunity does not trouble dead men, or dead ones who flatter themselves that they are alive.
      - in "The Philistine" [Opportunity]

Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
      - [Friendship]

It is not book learning young men need, nor instruction about this and that, but a stiffening of the vertebrae which will cause them to be loyal to a trust, to act promptly, concentrate their energies, do a thing--"carry a message to Garcia."
      - Carry a Message to Garcia--Philistine
        [Action]

Every man who speaks out loud and clear is tinting the "Zeitgeist." Every man who expresses what he honestly thinks is true is changing the Spirit of the Times. Thinkers help other people to think, for they formulate what others are thinking. No person writes or thinks alone--thought is in the air, but its expression is necessary to create a tangible Spirit of the Times.
      - Pig-Pen Pete--The Bee [Thought]

Make two grins grow where there was only a grouch before.
      - Pig-Pen Pete--Why I Ride Horse-Back [Help]
