contents of the book is as follows :-
I. WANTED—A MAN
God after a man. Wealth is nothing, fame is nothing. Manhood is everything.
Dare to live thy creed. Conquer your place in the world. All things serve a brave soul.
III. THE WILL AND THE WAY
Find a way or make one. Everything is either pusher or pushed. The world always listens to a man with a will in him.
IV. SUCCESS UNDER DIFFICULTIES
There is scarcely a great truth or doctrine but has had to fight its way to recognition through detraction, calumny, and persecution.
V. USES OR OBSTACLES
The Great Sculptor cares little for the human block as such; it is the statue He is after; and He will blast, hammer, and chisel with poverty, hardships, anything to get out the man.
VI. ONE UNWAVERING AIM
Find your purpose and fling your life out to it. Try to be somebody with all your might.
VII. SOWING AND REAPING
What is put into the first of life is put into the whole of life. Start right.
Self-made or never made. The greatest men have risen from the ranks.
IX. WORK AND WAIT
Don't risk a life's superstructure upon a day's foundation.
X. CLEAR GRIT
The goddess of fame or of fortune has been won by many a poor boy who had no friends, no backing, or anything but pure grit and invincible purpose to commend him.
XI. THE GRANDEST THING IN THE WORLD
Manhood is above all riches and overtops all titles; character is greater than any career.
XII. WEALTH IN ECONOMY
"Hunger, rags, cold, hard work, contempt, suspicion, unjust reproach, are disagreeable; but debt is infinitely worse than all."
XIII. RICH WITHOUT MONEY
To have nothing is not poverty. Whoever uplifts civilization is rich though he die penniless, and future generations will erect his monument.
XIV. OPPORTUNITIES WHERE YOU ARE
"How speaks the present hour? Act." Don't wait for great opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.
XV. THE MIGHT OF LITTLE THINGS
There is nothing small in a world where a mud-crack swells to an Amazon, and the stealing of a penny may end on the scaffold.
Guard your weak point. Be lord over yourself.
