Essay 1: Andrew Carnegies Wealth
Andrew Carnegie, one of the most well-known and richest industrialist’s in America, reasoned that the rich must live modestly and use their prosperities to sustain the living standards. Carnegie had gathered phenomenal wealth and familiarized himself with other rich industrialists of his period.

Carnegie states, “yet the man who dies leaving behind many millions of available wealth, which was his to administer during life.” I chose this last quote that Carnegie said towards the end of the essay, because I believe what he was referring to is for those that worked their whole childhood life but never got to appreciate their wealth. Those that did not get that prodigious opportunity will pass away “unwept, unhonored, and unsung” (Wealth, 427). Additionally, Carnegie’s story was very inspiring and he comes to show that giving should be completed in a
