"He picked up the lemons that Fate had sent him and started a lemonade-stand."

"Jesus was an Anarchist."

"Everyone is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day. Wisdom consists in not exceeding that limit."

"A Message To Garcia" [1899]
Originally published as an untitled filler article in the March 1899 issue of Hubbard's The Philistine Magazine, but quickly
reprinted as a pamphlet and a book; the inspirational piece was wildly popular, and has sold over 40 million copies worldwide.
Two movie adaptations were produced, an Edison silent feature in 1916 and a Fox sound feature in 1936 {see below}.
The story begins when President McKinley needs to contact Cuban rebels during the war with Spain; U.S. Army Capt. Andrew Rowan
[1857-1943] accepts the task to deliver the message to Gen. Calixto Garcia, even though nobody knew where he was.
