The richest man in Babylon

‘A part of all you earn is yours to keep.’

‘Seven cures for a lean purse:
1. Start your purse to fattening.
2. Control your expenditures.
3. Make your gold multiply.
4. Guard your treasures from loss.
5. Make of your dwelling a profitable investment.
6. Insure a future income.
7. Increase your ability to earn.’

‘Man of action are favored by the Goddes of good luck.’

‘Five laws of gold:
1. Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one-tenth of his easrning to create an estate for his future and that of his family.
2.Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.
3. Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.
4. Gold slippeth away from the man who invest it in businesses or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.
5. Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trust it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.’

‘Better a little caution than a great regret.’

‘We cannot afford to be without adequate protection.’


by Clason, George S. – ‘The richest man in Babylon’
