The Five Laws of Accumulating Wealth

THE FIRST LAW OF ACCUMULATING WEALTH

Money cometh gladly and in increasing quantities to any man who will put by not less than 1/10th of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.

THE SECOND LAW OF ACCUMULATING WEALTH

Money laboreth diligently and contently for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.

THE THIRD LAW OF ACCUMULATING WEALTH

Money clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of wise men in its handling.

THE FOURTH LAW OF ACCUMULATING WEALTH

Money slippeth away from the owner who invests it in business or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.

THE FIFTH LAW OF ACCUMULATING WEALTH

Money flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.
