Elbert Hubbard


Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.


A man is as good as he has to be, and a woman as bad as she dares.

Where much is expected from an individual, he may rise to the level of events and make the dream come true.

We awaken in others the same attitude of mind we hold toward them.


Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed — there's so little competition.


One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.


Friendship, like credit, is highest when it is not used.


It is easy to get everything you want, provided you first learn to do without the things you cannot get.

It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do.

We work to become, not to acquire.


The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.


Progress comes from the intelligent use of experience.

The reason men oppose progress is not that they hate progress, but that they love inertia.

The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.

The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.

The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without his teacher.

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.


The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed — it is a process of elimination.


The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it.
