    A Message to Garcia

    NetBuilder javanx3d recently introduced me to A Message to Garcia.

    Apparently I am one of the few people on Earth not familiar with this work.

    According to Wikipedia:

    A Message to Garcia is an inspirational essay written by Elbert Hubbard that has been made into two motion pictures. It was originally published as a filler without a title in the March, 1899 issue of the Philistine magazine which he edited, but was quickly reprinted as a pamphlet and a book. It was wildly popular, selling over 40 million copies, and being translated into 37 languages.

    If you're not familiar with it -- it's is well worth reading (and short).

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    yep, it's a rather popular piece, it was given to US navy and marines during world wars and purchased in mass by employers to distribute to their employees.

    People who get things done are always in high demand
