100-year-old gems still apply today. Although American author, salesman and philosopher Elbert Hubbard lived over a century ago, his sage words of wisdom are just as relevant today. A recently discovered cardboard-bound book he wrote shortly before his death aboard the torpedoed Lusitania contains priceless gems of straight forward, valuable advice, such as:

  • Better mend one fault in yourself than a hundred in your neighbor. 
  • Before you are fit to give orders, you must be willing to take orders. The leader of the orchestra has always been a man who has played second fiddle. Talk less and listen more. 
  • One machine can do the work of 50 ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. 
  • Talk less and listen more. 
  • The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge. 
  • The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fear you will make one. 
  • It is easy to get everything you want, provided you first learn to do without the things you cannot get. 
  • The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today. 
  • Enthusiasm is a great hill climber.
