Richest Man in Babylon

by Josiah Audette

The following is from Richest Man in Babylon by George Samuel Clason.

Lo, Money is plentiful
for those who understand
the simple rules of its acquisition.
Start thy purse to fattening.
Control thy expenditures
Make thy gold multiply
Guard thy treasures from loss
Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment
Insure future income
Increase thy ability to earn.
