Chapter 9 - The Formula of Success
"One ship drives east, and another drives west,
With the self-same winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails, and not the gales
Which tells us the way they go.
"Like the waves of the sea are the ways of fate
As we voyage along thru life.
'Tis the set of the soul which decides its goal
And not the calm or the strife."
---Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
What is the eternal question which stands up and looks you and every sincere man squarely in the eye every morning?
"How can I better my condition?" That is the real life question which con-fronts you, and will haunt you every day till you solve it.
