“When Nature Wants A Man” – Laws of Success 1925

“When Nature Wants A Man”
Angela Morgan

When Nature wants to drill a man,
And Thrill a man,
And Skill a man.
When Nature wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;
When she yearn with all her heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall praise

Watch her method, watch her ways!
How she ruthlessly perfects
Whom she royally elects;
How she hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him
Into trail shapes of clay with only Nature
understands–

 

While his tortured heart is crying and he
lifts beseeching hands!–

 

How she bends, but never breaks,
When his good she undertakes…
How she uses whom she chooses
And with every purpose fuses him,
By every art induces him
To try his splendor out–
Nature knows what she’s about.

 

When Nature wants to take a man,
And shake a man,
And wake a man;
When Nature wants to make a man
To do the Future’s will;
When she tries with all her skill
And she yearns with all her soul
To create him large and whole…
With that cunning she prepares him!

 

How she goads and never spares him,
How she whets him and she frets him,
And in poverty begets him….
How she often disappoints
Whom she sacredly anoints,
With what wisdom she will hide him,
Never minding what betide him
Through his genius sob with slighting and
his pride may not forget!

 

Bids him struggle harder yet.
Makes him lonely
So that only
God’s high messages shall reach him
So that she may surely teach him
What the hierarchy planned.

 

Though he may not understand
Gives him passions to command —
How remorselessly she spurs him,
With terrific ardor stirs him
When she poignantly prefers him!

 

When Nature wants to name a man
And fame a man
And tame a man;
When Nature wants to shame a man
To do his heavenly best….
When she tries the highest test
That she reckoning may bring–
When she wants a god or king!–
How she reins him and restrains him
So his body scarce contains him
While she fires him
And inspires him!
Keeps him yearning, ever burning for a
tantalizing goal—

 

Lures and lacerates his soul.
Sets a challenge for his spirit,
Draws it higher when he’s near it–
Makes a jungle, that he clear it;
Makes a desert, that he fear it
And subdue it if he can–
So doth Nature make a man.

 

Then, to test his spirit’s wrath
Hurls a mountain his path–
Puts a bitter choice before him
And relentless stands o’er him.
“Climb, or perish!” so she says….
Watch her purpose, watch her ways!

 

Nature’s plan is wondrous kind
Could we understand her mind.
Fools are they who call her blind.
When his feet are torn and bleeding
Yet his spirit mounts unheeding,
All his higher powers speeding
Blazing newer paths and fine;
When the force that is divine
Leaps to challenge every failure and his
ardor still, is sweet

 

And love and hope are burning in the
presence of defeat…

 

Lo, the crisis! Lo, the shout
That must call the leader out.
When the people need salvation
Both he come to lead the nation….
Then doth Nature show her plan
When the world has found — a MAN!

Laws of Success – A Poem

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t;
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out of our world we find,
Success begins with a fellows will —
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclasses, you are —
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.

Ron Paul Goes From Ridicule to Respect

TEXANS IN WASHINGTON
Paul goes from ridicule to respect

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of reports looking at members of your elected delegation.

Ron Paul is a white-haired, soft-voiced, 74-year-old doctor who has twice failed in presidential campaigns and is frequently derided by his Republican colleagues as an ideologue from the party’s libertarian fringe.

No one would have been surprised if the Lake Jackson congressman had slipped off the political radar after his 2008 quixotic bid for the presidency, his ambitions for higher office thwarted.

But Paul has refused to go out to the political pasture to live in comfortable irrelevance. As odd as it may seem, he has become one of the most influential Republicans in a capital city dominated by liberal Democrats.

The subject that has brought him to prominence is the same issue that subjected him to ridicule from establishment Republicans for years: his long-standing opposition to the nation’s monetary system and the Federal Reserve Board that prints money and controls its supply.

“On economic matters, he was seen as a way outside the mainstream,” University of Houston political scientist Richard Murray said. “His views were somewhat 19th century in the view of a lot of economists.”

Well, they say history repeats itself, and suddenly Paul’s “19th-century” thinking seems appealing to those suffering through the first economic meltdown of the 21st century.
No longer ignored

Paul’s proposal to audit the Federal Reserve — first introduced by the Texas congressman more than 20 years ago — recently sailed through the House Financial Services Committee.

His bill has an astonishing 317 co-sponsors in the House, three-quarters of the chamber’s members.

In the Senate, where Paul asked Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont socialist, to introduce a similar bill, the measure already has 30 co-sponsors.

And while he was once ignored by his political antagonists at the Federal Reserve, Paul is now engaged in a very public policy debate with Fed Chair Ben Bernanke, who has criticized the Texan’s legislation in speeches, interviews and an op-ed last month in the Washington Post. Asked about Paul’s proposal, the chairman declared it would be “bad for markets, bad for the Fed’s credibility, bad for inflation expectations and bad for the dollar.”

But not bad for Paul. The lawmaker has been booked solid with media interviews and college speeches; indeed, the Don Quixote of congressional Republicans has had more success in 2009 than any time in his three-decade legislative career.

“I never had so many calls as I had last week,” Paul said.

It’s a sweet moment for someone who has long been on the margins of Washington politics. Paul attracted his share of attention during his presidential campaign, but even then, he was painted as a fringe candidate zealously supported by libertarian ideologues.

In the House, Paul was ignored by Democrats and marginalized by Republicans. He was punished for the very views that earn him so much adulation today.

According to Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., in 2003, when Paul was set to assume the chairmanship of the Financial Services subcommittee, Republican higher-ups eliminated the panel because they didn’t want Paul in charge.

“He told me, ‘I won’t get anywhere until you become the chairman,’ ” Frank said.

Paul may have been kidding at the time, but his words were prophetic.

With the Democrats in control and Frank as chairman, the committee voted 43-26 in favor of Paul’s amendment that would give Congress more power latitude in auditing the Fed.

“I’m very proud to have been involved in bringing his amendment to a vote,” said Frank, who still voted against it.
Going mainstream

In Texas, analysts see Paul’s renaissance as a reflection of the changing political landscape of America.

“Ron Paul’s got a hell of a lot more political support now than just fringe nuts,” Murray said. “It’s gone mainstream now.”

But it’s not that Paul has gone mainstream. Rather, the mainstream has gone Paul-ite, with popular anger at Wall Street and the Federal Reserve crystallizing into support for policies Paul has long advocated.

“What happened was the Fed got itself in trouble and he’s the one who was there to take advantage of it,” Frank said.

Paul says concerns about American monetary policy — specifically President Richard Nixon taking the country off the gold standard in 1971 — drove him into politics, and he’s spent most of his career wondering whether people would ever care. The answer, suddenly, is yes, something the congressman admits “seems strange after all these years.”

He’s also noticed that his colleagues are treating him differently, too.

“It was like, there he goes on his way, nice guy, but he’s not in the ballgame,” Paul said.

“But today, I think they’re paying a little more attention.”
