During a time when the infamous boll weevil was killing a high percentage of the cotton crop, Carver is credited with encouraging the use of alternative crops such as soybeans, sweet potatoes and peanuts. "How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these."  George Washington Carver
