The old saying, "Marry in haste and repent at leisure," will never lose its force. Worse than the man whose selfishness keeps him a bachelor till death, is the young man, who, under an impulse he imagines to be an undying love, marries a girl as poor, weak, and selfish as himself.-from "Chapter VII: As to Marriage"Subtitled A Ladder to Practical Success, this little book is chock full of handy advice for a young man looking to make his way in the world... or at least in the world of 1895, when it was first published. Calhoun's guidance encompasses: .the importance of correct habits.the value of experience.selecting a calling.some of labor's compensations.patience and perseverance.and more.While some of its core counsel is timeless, this quaint work is a charming look back at a society that no longer exists.Also available from Cosimo Classics: Calhoun's Business Hints for Men and Women.American artist and writer ALFRED ROCHEFORT CALHOUN contributed photography, sketches, and articles to publications including Harper's Weekly and the Philadelphia Press.
