Thank you Mr. Emerson! As also implied in a poem of Emperor Chen Tsung (AD 998 - 1023) of Hsi-Hsia Empire, wealth...beautiful women...and nearly everything else of value could be gained through study with enthusiasm.

“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Many great things were achieved by accident.

Enthusiasm is the battery or the power supply to achieve greatness

Enthusiasm may be a substantial driving force in any endeavour.

I tip my hat to Ralph Waldo Emerson, one of the wisest man to step on this planet ever.

Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century.

It's actually indubitable and tenable that success may never come without this great impetus 'enthusiasm'.
But some people do stumble on some postion they never dreamed of or desire.

I love the sentiment and I think that often this is true. It is more likely that we appreciate and benefit from those accomplishments we underwent with enthusiasm. And I do suppose that it depends on your definition of "great". There have been many wondrous and beautiful things in history that were crafted with slave labor. Even there I suppose there was enthusiasm for these projects by some.

Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved.

I agree with RoadRunner on this one. Enthusiasm helps, but you can't generalise. Many good things have come out of horrific wars, eg medical advancements & surgical techniques. Many great things were achieved while attempting to achieve something else entirely.

Well, yes, NeuroticHellFem. Many medical advances and surgical techniques have come out of horrific wars. Still, even during a horrific war, scientists who carry out these experiments may be spurred by some sort of enthusiasm. The enthusiasm caused by receiving a good pay for their work, for example.

Have you seen MASH? Doctors in wartime do not receive good pay for their work.
