Famous European Artists
Hermann Grimm says, "Reverence for what is great is a universal feeling. When we look at great men, it is as if we saw a victorious army, the flower of a people, marching along. They all speak one common language, know nothing of castes, of noble or pariah; and he who now or in times to come thinks or acts like them rises up to them, and is admitted into their circle."
Possibly, by reading of these great men some may be led to "think and act like them," and thus "be admitted into their circle." All of these possessed untiring industry and a resolute purpose to succeed. Most were poor in early life: Michael Angelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael of Urbino, Titian, Murillo, Rubens, Rembrandt, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Sir Edwin Landseer, Turner
Sarah Knowles Bolton (September 15, 1841 – February 21, 1916)
She wrote extensively for the press, was one of the first corresponding secretaries of the Woman's national temperance union, was associate editor of the Boston "Congregationalist" (1878–81), and traveled for two years in Europe, studying profit-sharing, female higher education, and other social questions. Her writings encourage readers to improve the world about them through faith and hard work.
