Like a tree, wealth sprouts from a little seed. The seed from which your tree of wealth will grow is the first copper that you save. The tree will develop more quickly the earlier you sow the seed. And the more consistently you save and provide for that tree, the sooner you will be able to enjoy its shade and bask in satisfaction.

Opportunity is a proud goddess who doesn’t waste time with the unprepared.

Desires must be clear and unambiguous. If there are too many, too many to understand or too many for a man to handle, they will destroy their own purpose.


The author finishes the tasks he gives himself to do. He takes care to avoid beginning challenging or pointless chores since he likes relaxation.

For those who understand and follow its laws, gold is reserved.

Wealth does not reside in the pocketbook a guy carries. If there is no golden stream to replenish it, a fat purse quickly empties.

The man who developed a growing surplus as a result of his mastery of the laws of wealth should consider those days in the future. He should make certain plans for investments or supplies that can last safely for many years while still being there for him when the time comes that he has so astutely predicted.
