Details: SUCCESS. WHAT IT IS Success is not money, nor is it fame. The King in the ancient fable turned to gold all that he touched, and starved to death. The “Sick Man of the East” has wealth galore and worldwide fame, but so abjectly afraid is he that he is never a moment alone; never tastes a dish that has not first been tried on a menial; and springs to his feet with pistol in hand if his best friend across the table happens to make a quick movement. Money and power he has, but not success. Success is liberty to command, coupled with a clear conscience and loving heart. William Gladstone was a success Abraham Lincoln was another. Few men attain so complete a success as theirs. Jesus of Nazareth was a success, though most people imagine he was “poor.” He was not. He wore seamless robes and fine linen and fared sumptuously in many elegant homes, where he was more at liberty to command than were the masters themselves. Nothing was too good for Jesus. To own all those homes would be a burden Jesus was too wise to assume. Liberty to command must not be overworked, lest it cease to be liberty and become the drudgery of taking care of things.
