Russell Conwell Speech “Acres of Diamonds”

Russell Conwell is the founder of Temple University and his speech “Acres of Diamonds” was given over 5000 times in the early 1900s.

He urges us to seek our dreams right where we are – not believing they’re somewhere “out there” that we cannot reach.

Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas; they are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them.”

Russell Conwell, Acres of Diamonds
