Marden Trilogy



The Trilogy of Orison Swett Marden


An Iron Will

There are no two words in the English language which stand out in bolder relief, like kings upon a checker-board, to so great an extent as the words ‘I will.’  There is strength, depth and solidity, decision, confidence and power, determination, vigor and individuality, in the round, ringing tone which characterizes its delivery.

How to Succeed

In every great painting of the masters there is one idea or figure which stands out boldly beyond everything else.  Every other idea or figure on the canvas is subordinate to this idea or figure, and finds its real significance not in itself, but, pointing to the central idea, finds its true expression there.  So in the vast universe of God, every object of creation is but a guide-board with an index finger pointing to the central figure of the created universe–Man.

Cheerfulness as a Life Power

A hearty laugh is delightful harmony; indeed, it is the best of all music.” “Children or adults without hilarity will never amount to much. Trees without blossoms will never bear fruit.

Joyfulness keeps the heart and face young. A good laugh makes us better friends with ourselves and everybody around us, and puts us into closer touch with what is best and brightest in our lot in life.

Physiology tells the story. The great sympathetic nerves are closely allied; and when one set carries bad news to the head, the nerves reaching the stomach are affected, indigestion comes on, and one’s countenance becomes doleful. Laugh when you can; it is a cheap medicine.
