Australia’s luck did not fall from the sky; it had to be torn from the earth in a triumph of mind over muscle.
The secret of Australia’s good fortune is the Australian character, the nation’s greatest renewable resource. Liberated from the constraints of the old world, Australia’s pioneers mined their reserves of enterprise, energy and ingenuity to build the great civilization of the south. Their over-riding principle was fairness: everybody had a right to a fair go and was obliged to do the right thing by others.
