This carefully crafted ebook: "EVERY MAN HIS OWN UNIVERSITY ? Success & Empowerment Collection" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "A distinct university walks about under each man's hat. The only man who achieves success in the other universities of the world, and in the larger university of life, is the man who has first taken his graduate course and his post-graduate course in the university under his hat. There observation furnishes a daily change in the curriculum. Books are not the original sources of power, but observation, which may bring to us all wide experience, deep thinking, fine feeling, and the power to act for oneself, is the very dynamo of power." ? Russell H. Conwell (from "Every Man His Own University") Russell Herman Conwell (1843 ? 1925) was an American Baptist minister, orator, philanthropist, lawyer, and writer. He is best remembered as the founder and first president of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the Pastor of The Baptist Temple, and for his inspirational lecture, Acres of Diamonds.
