I REMEMBER
The Autobiography of Abraham Flexner

Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat. Long is the road thereto, and rough and steep at the first. But when the height is achieved, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning.--Hesiod

SIMON AND SCHUSTER
NEW YORK
1940
