I've never heard of Elbert Hubbard, so when I saw this I Googled him.offer, I did what came naturally:
Needless to say, it seems like he was a turn of the 20th century writer/philosopher. Ironically enough? He grew up down the road from where I live now, so maybe I'll just have to learn more about him and visit his house.
It'd definitely be something to do as my summer ends!
