Book Reading - The Richest Men In Babylon

I have started reading this book which sets out explain the basic parables about finance and how to acquire wealth in once's life time.

These are few important points that I have noted down from the book and my understanding of it.

  1. Each time I paid I took one from each ten pieces of copper and hid it under. I was no shorted of funds than before.
  2. You do eat the children of your savings? Then how do expect them to work for you? And how will they can have childeren and work for you?
  3. You first learned to live upon less than you could earn.
  4. Next you learned to seek advice from those who were competent through their own experiences to give it.
  5. And lastly you have learned to make gold work for you
  6. Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes no time with those who are unprepared.
  7. Then learn to make the treasure work for you. Make it your slave. Make its children and its children's children work for you.
  8. Counsel with wise men. Seek the advice of the men whose daily work is handling money.
  9. Enjoy life while you are here. Do not overstrain or try to save too much. Life is good and life is rich with things worthwhile and thing to enjoy.
