Overview

This ebook is complete with linked Table of Contents making navigation quicker and easier.

A must read for every high school student to MBA student and anyone who to realize that long lasting prosperity is built through work and over a period of time.

It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation. Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realisation of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to, nay it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue.

The moral virtues are the foundation and support of prosperity as they are the soul of greatness. They endure for ever, and all the works of man which endure are built upon them. Without them there is neither strength, stability, nor substantial reality, but only ephemeral dreams. To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful and free.

Meet the Author

James Allen was born in Leicester, England on November 28, 1864. When he was fifteen, the family business failed and his father left for America to find work. His father was murdered before he could send for the family and subsequently, James left school and worked for several British manufacturers until 1902. His literary career lasted only nine years until his death in 1912.

    Would love to know if the book is any good, but I bought and the link does not work.

    I bought this book as e-book and I cannot access it. When I try to bring it up it just closes out of the book (while using my nook) or closes completely out of the reader program (when I try to access it on my mac). Tried contacting customer service, but they have ignored my complaint.
