Rick Newcombe joins Jerry on Vocal Point to discuss “Stories of Success” books, by 19th century author Horatio Alger. Alger’s books have the “rags to riches” theme and emphasize the importance of having good character.
“A boy who is thrown upon his own guardianship and his own resources develops manliness and self-reliance sooner than at home.”
From The Young Adventurer
“Suddenly Andy made a spurt and forged ahead of Conrad. The young aristocrat could hardly believe his eyes when he saw Valentine’s boat, impelled by a competitor whom he had despised, take the leading place. He flushed with vexation and made a desperate effort to regain his lost position.”
From Andy Grant’s Pluck
“You must remember, my dear boy, that hard work is better than luck, and more to be relied upon. Don’t expect to make your fortune all at once by finding a big nugget, but work steadily, and you will meet with more or less success.”
