Abstract:

It has been said that ""Nothing Succeeds Like Success."" What is Success? If we consult the dictionaries, they will give us the etymology of this much used word, and in general terms the meaning will be ""the accomplishment of a purpose."" But as the objects in nearly every life differ, so success cannot mean the same thing to all men. The artist's idea of success is very different from that of the business man, and the scientist differs from both, as does the statesman from all three. We read of successful gamblers, burglars or freebooters, but no true success was ever won or ever can be wo.
