His steel built America, his ideas about how to live and give continue to influence good people. Andrew Carnegie has been a hero of mine since a colleague introduced me to Napoleon Hill, who sparked my interest in Carnegie. Read his autobiography and have always been impressed with how he chose to use the immense amounts of money he made. Love that evidence of his good works for society stands in one of my favorite places, Historic Downtown Bryan, Texas. The Carnegie Library is a beautiful reminder of a how to utilize excess resources one is blessed with that will stand strong for many more generations.
