Occupy Manhood

"It is so sad to see thousands of students graduated every year from our grand institutions whose object it is to make stalwart, independent, self-supporting men, turned out into the world saplings instead of stalwart oaks, "memory glands" instead of brainy men, helpless instead of self-supporting, sickly instead of robust, weak instead of strong, leaning instead or erect. So many promising youth, and never a finished man!"

-Orison Swett Marden from "Pushing to the Front"
