What do McDonald’s french fries and Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” have in common? Right: The work of Luther Burbank
“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.”
In the author’s preface of his book “Think and Grow Rich”, Napoleon Hill mentions a list of 27 well known men. They had admitted that they had accumulated their vast fortunes by making use of “the Carnegie secret”. This secret had laid the groundwork for Napoleon Hill’s books “The Law of Success in 16 Lessons” and “Think and Grow Rich”
Among these men was Luther Burbank. His name is still well known and perhaps you have already had one of his creation for lunch. If you occasionally have french fries at a McDonald’s restaurant, chances are good that your fries were made from Russet Burbank potatoes, because a large percentage of McDonald’s french fries are made from this special large brown-skinned, white-fleshed variety.
Luther Burbank was an “American botanist, horticulturist and a pioneer in agricultural science” (Wikipedia). He was born on March 7, 1849 in Lancaster, Massachusetts and died on April 11, 1926 at the age of 77 in Santa Rosa, California.
Luther Burbank, also known as the “Wizard of Horticulture” and “Plant Wizard of California”, created hundreds of useful varieties of fruits, flowers, vegetables, grains and grasses. One of his most amazing creations was a spineless cactus, which is useful for cattle feed.
Even though he had only received an elementary education, a little above high school, Luther Burbank revolutionized agriculture and food production in the 19th and 20th century. His inspirational guide was Charles Darwin’s “The Variations of Animals and Plants under Domestication”.
