"The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them."
– Bernard Baruch


About Bernard Baruch
The American financier and unofficial presidential adviser Bernard Baruch was known as the "Park Bench Statesman" for his penchant for taking meetings on park benches. He was born in 1870 in South Carolina. By the time he was 30, he had become a millionaire. During World War I, Woodrow Wilson asked Baruch's advice on economic issues, which began a long-term relationship with the White House. He refused to become Treasury Secretary in FDR's cabinet, preferring his unofficial role. He died in 1965.

Quote of the Day
"Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
– Nathaniel Hawthorne


About Nathaniel Hawthorne
The novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), famous for his dense prose and allegorical undertones, is perhaps best known for The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. He was born in Massachusetts, and his New England upbringing permeates his work. Hawthorne achieved fame late in life: his first work, a collection of short stories, was rejected by publishers, but he continued to write even as he worked at the Salem Custom House.

"Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule."
– Samuel Butler


About Samuel Butler
British author Samuel Butler is best known as the author of The Way of All Flesh, a semiautobiographical novel V. S. Pritchett called one of the time bombs of literature because of its incendiary critique of Victorian society and because Butler delayed publication until after his death. He was born in 1835 near Bingham. Rather than enter the clergy as many of his family members had, he became a sheep farmer in New Zealand for four years. He first gained fame with the satirical novel Erewhon. He died in 1902.
