Bio: My Name is Cecile Rhodes. My father was a priest who took pleasure in his short sermons. My brother owned a cotton field that i soon lived on. In 1873 I went to Oriell University where i soon postponed my studies for a trip back to South Africa where i bought stock in a failing diamond Mine. My I'm a politician and a diamond Magnate. I own huge stocks and made millions out of Diamond mines and business. I became a mayor of South Africa and I strongly Support English rule. eventually i was found of fraud and had to resign. Furthermore i devoted myself to the development of a distant country that soon became Rhodesia in honor of me. After I die i plan to leave nearly all of my fortune of £6 million to public service. This will hopefully become Scholarships for English and american men.
Favorite quotations: "Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life."
"We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories."
"
I have found out one thing and that is, if you have an idea, and it is a good idea, if you only stick to it you will come out all right."
