Acres of Diamonds

Authored by Russell H Conwell

The world has changed considerably since Russell Conwell travelled the United States performing Acres of Diamonds. As an "inspirational speech" it has aged gracefully, with some obvious differences worth pointing out. First, In 1915 the average yearly wages was $687. Yes, that is an entire years wages for the average man (the average woman averaged half that). Of course other prices were lower as well - 7 cents would get you a loaf of bread, 15 cents a gallon of gas, and a pound of steak would set you back 26 cents. Second, if you are "politically correct" you can find something to be offend you - but as a whole it is only biased against the arrogant, and the "second generation wealthy" (and even that is used to teach).

Problems and opportunities exist today just as they did in 1915. The "lessons" of Acres of Diamonds are as valid today as in 1915.
