About Andrew Carnegie
This is the story behind the man who gave away his fortune and paved the way for libraries and literacy in the Waterloo Region.
It is the mind that makes the body rich. There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else. Money can only be the useful drudge of things immeasurably higher than itself... My aspirations take a higher flight. Mine be it to have contributed to the enlightenment and the joys of the mind, to the things of the spirit, to… sweetness and light. I hold this the noblest possible use of wealth. -Andrew Carnegie
