Magister Nemo's pointers should really be self evident.
However, to people new to our concept on this matter I usually point out that a member of the CoS may well be a successful millionaire.
He or she could also have built a model railway in their attic, recognised by the Model Railway Club of America as one of the most spectacular in the state of Alabama!
It is about personal achievement through the pursuit of one's goals.
I would also add that any wealthy member of the CoS I can think of has acieved their wealth through this method - money merely being a consequence of their passion, rather than them being a corporate drone.
Many here will have seen me quote the man before but I think the statement below nicely summates the issue:
"A person whose genius or other predilection is contributory to the develpment of any science, art, philosophy or religion as a lifework, having accepted his mission and administered it for the world's weal and his own happiness - he is a world
worker."~ Dr. Elmer Gates (1853 - 1923)
"u.v.ray is an uncompromising writer who glares at the world with bloodshot eyes. He gazes into the abyss and sees jewels of tragedy, comedy, cruelty, heroism, tenderness, darkness, grit and futility. We Are Glass is a searing collection of seventeen razor-sharp short stories; a very fine collection indeed." -- Paul D. Brazill. www.uvray.moonfruit.com
