Overview

Mr. L. Charley teaches us that the advantages which we obtain bear a direct proportion to the exertions which we put forth to secure them. He takes as his motto, "Opportunity knocks at least once at every man's door; it is the deaf and the irresolute that it passes by." So as to better present his subject he, at the outset, compares and contrasts Chance, Hazard, Fortune, and Luck. He shows, also, the relation of Luck to Fetishism, and discusses the part which Fortune plays in life. Even though the mines of knowledge have often been laid bare by the divining-rod of Chance—the hazel-wand of fetishism—it must not be forgotten that Providence gives us Chance, and that man must mold it to his advantage. Altho Fortune befriends the bold, every one may be the architect of his own fortune if he makes use of his advantages. Great opportunities come to all, and the secret of success in life is to be ready to grasp them when they arrive. It was Austin Phelps' belief that vigilance in watching Opportunity; tact and daring in seizing upon Opportunity; force and persistence in crowding Opportunity to its utmost of possible achievement—these are the martial virtues that command Success.
