People of Interest: Andrew Carnegie.

My aunt who's degree is in Human resources list this quote by Andrew Carnegie on her website :
"Take away my people, but leave my factories and soon grass will grow on the factory floors… Take away my factories, but leave my people and soon we will have new and better factories" 

Born in Scotland Andrew Carnegie was an immigrant who lived the American dream. He worked his way up from a factory worker in a bobbin factory to an industrialist. Then he became a philanthropist, giving a way most of his money.

If this man can make it in this world why can't we?

I always appreciated his quote: As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Fascinating individual.
