The classic work for those who want to improve their lives by improving themselves. Samuel Smiles discusses the underlying principles that can lead anyone to success, including work, courage, self-control, duty, and truthfulness--virtues that sound old-fashioned to many but are nevertheless the real keys to a happy life. This publication from Boomer Books is specially designed and typeset for comfortable reading.
The poorest dwelling, presided over by a virtuous, thrifty, cheerful, and cleanly woman, may thus be the abode of comfort, virtue, and happiness; it may be the scene of every ennobling relation in family life; it may be endeared to a man by many delightful associations; furnishing a sanctuary for the heart, a refuge from the storms of life, a sweet resting-place after labour.
