Page 184 - You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what's that? Come up with a smiling face. It's nothing against you to fall down flat, But to lie there, that's disgrace.

Page 144 - They stand written in our Works of Science, say you; in the accumulated records of man's Experience? - Was man with his Experience present at the Creation, then, to see how it all went on?

Page 151 - If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
Page 203 - Might of the roaring boiler, Force of the engine's thrust, Strength of the sweating toiler, Greatly in these we trust. But back of them stands the schemer, The thinker who drives things through; Back of the job — the dreamer, Who's making the dream come true!
