Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Simplicity of Greatness and the Greatness of Simplicity: Discourse Delivered by Mrs. Elizabeth Harlow-Goetz at San Diego, California, on Lincoln's Birthday, 1915

The thought, as you all know, in its simple statement, is one which has touched the mind and the heart of every individual; not simply because of the person to whom we Shall refer, but because men love to be great. Or, in other words, the thought which is expressed by the term great has always been the dream, or ideal, in human life. If it nad not been for this dream, or ideal, many men would have failed. While some have paid no attention to it, others have attempted and failed. But, I repeat, to become great is the dream and ideal of human nature. Men. And when I say men I mean women as well, have had the idea that to become great they must do something uh usual. Men set themselves apart from other men and thereby become distinguished be cause of that which they do; and I am about to say as Thomas Paine said: The work of distinction from this basis, is the work of lit tle minds and narrow concepts and small souls. For, in turning to the history of man, we find that those who have become im mortalized, are the men and the women who have never thought about the prize that was to be won, but they have simply lived the everyday life as it came to them and, much as General Grant said when hewing his way into Richmond: I shall proceed upon this line if it takes all summer.
