Elbert Hubbard



mottoes, epigrams, short essays, passages, orphic sayings and preachments, coined from a life of love, laughter, and work, by a man who achieved greatness in literature, art, philosophy, and business



Elbert Hubbard, the most positive human force of his time, is a man of genius in business, in art, in literature, in philosophy. He is an idealist, dreamer, orator, scientist. In his knowledge of the fundamental, practical affairs of the living, in business, in human interests, in education, politics and law he seems without a competitor., he is like Jefferson in his democracy, in teaching a nation to love to govern itself and to simplify all living. He is like Paine in his love for liberty and in his desire that all shall be free to act in freedom and to think in freedom.


He is like lincoln in that he would free all mankind. He, too, knows that there can be no free man on the earth so long as there is one slave. Elbert Hubbard sees, too, that just so long as there is one woman who is denied any right that man claims for himself, there is no free man; that no man can be a superior, true American, so long as one woman is denied her birthright of life, liberty, and happiness.

He knows that freedom to think and act, without withholding that right from any other, evolves humanity. Therefore he gives his best energy to inspiring men and women to think and to act, each for himself. He pleads for the rights of children, for so-called criminals, for the insane, the weak, and all those who have failed to be a friend to themselves, need friendship most. The golden rule is his rule of life.
