Man is placed into this world not as a finality, —but as a possibility. Man’s greatest enemy is,—himself.
Man in his weakness is the creature of circumstances; man in his strength is the creator of circumstances. Whether he be victim or victor depends largely on himself. Man is never truly great merely for what he is, but ever for what he may become.
Until man be truly filled with the knowledge of the majesty of his possibility, until there come to him the glow of realization of his privilege to live the life committed to him, as an individual life for which he is individually responsible, he is merely groping through the years.
Originally published in 1907, this book is one of a series William George Jordan wrote and can be thought of as precursors to today’s self-help book.
