This volume is dedicated to helping people to "apply themselves diligently to right pursuits--sparing neither labour, pains, nor self-denial in prosecuting them--and to rely upon their own efforts in life." Though the author admits that his lessons are "old-fashioned," he nevertheless delivers still-useful lectures on such commonsense concepts as the importance of learning from failure, how work is the best teacher, and the value of thrift, gentility, and honesty, all peppered with examples of such noble industry from the lives of writers, scientists, artists, inventors, educators, philanthropists, missionaries, and martyrs. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
