most successful men in the end are those whose success is the
result of steady accretion. That intellectuality is more vigorous
that has attained its strength gradually. It is the man who
carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider
and wider — and progressively better able to grasp any theme
or situation — persevering in what he knows to be practical,
and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed
in the greatest degree."
