Author's Note [chapter]

2021 Free Spirit  
The study of individuals, what their aspirations were, their strug gles, and their difficulties, is a source of endless fascination. In a well-done biography, one can enter into the very soul of great individuals and expand one' s own soul along with them. . . . The identification of one's self with the great men and women of history is the surest way of arousing the imagination to a sense of the possibilities of one's spiritual growth and to a . . . realization of one's own potentialities. - MWG, 1953
