"The height by groat men reached and KEPT" calls attention to the
fact that real greatness never permits BACKSLIDING.
There arc not many instances In history of men prominent In youth or
middle age who fell later Into obscurity?and BUCh of these as there are were
not really great.
Greatness is a SOUL QUALITY closely allied to hard work. The man
whose soul has been fired with zeal for a wonderful cause cannot lay down
Successful men seldom retire.
When Abraham Lincoln first entered Congress in 1SI7 he found .lohn
Quincy Adams there, working in plain clothes.
Benjamin Franklin cold have left a name big enough for a thousand
years of history if he had died at 40. Hut he had won for America the aid of
France in the Revolutionary War 510 YEARS after his name had becott.Q a
household word in America and Kuropo through Poor Richard's Almanac.
Benjamin Harrison returning to his law practice after the presidency,
Charles Dickens killing himself with work after his name was internationally
famous. Walter Scott repaying a debt of hundreds of thousands after ago ami
fame had set their seals upon him. Edison working id hours a day for a score
of years after the crown of olive had been placed upon his head these are

Moil are great, not because they are able to attain something they want
but because they WANT SOMETHING they have NOT ATTAINED.
The barbarian Alexander, who wept for more worlds to conquer, express

Greatness is not situated at h goal it does not lie at a terminus. It is
IN THE SOUL <>r a man and . xists both before and after the accomplishment
of every noteworthy deed.
Great inon do hoi retire from greatness, because they can't. Backsliding
is a characteristic of men who have NEVER been truly great, and is a proof
