Poverty a Prerequisite of Success

"I overheard a conversation between a little group of Boston men the other evening. The subject of discussion was the youth of the rising generation. All agreed that 20 years of poverty and struggle in early life was the sine qua non for success. All the speakers were millionaires, of national repute for mercantile sagacity, and self made men. - Boston Traveler"
