Up From Slavery: An Autobiography - Booker Taliaferro Washington

This quote was added by theodeath
Some people may say that it was Tuskegee's good luck that brought to us this gift of 50,000 dollars. No, it was not luck. It was hard work. Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work. When Mr. Huntington gave me the first two dollars, I did not blame him for not giving me more, but made up my mind that I was going to convince him by tangible results that we were worthy of larger gifts.
