Man is Like a Snow-Ball

Man is like a snow-ball:

Leave him lying in idleness against the sunny face of prosperity, and all the good that is in him melts like fresh butter in the dog-days; but kick him round, and he gathers strength at every revolution.

To make a figure in the world, you much keep moving.

The Mountain Democrat (Placerville, California) Jul 29, 1854
