Money Wisdom

Here comes a bit more wisdom from your humble servant.

Love is the most important thing in the world. It is the sunshine that illuminates the earth. It makes the sad happy. It improves health. It makes us want to live.

But close behind is money. Money is so important that it might well be considered a “superpower” like the ability to fly or to resist bullets. It can change the pitiful to the powerful.

It can make the homely beautiful. It can make the stupid smart. It can make the weak strong. It can light up the darkness. It can make the unlovely lovable. It can make a nerdy guy a superman.

Obviously, don’t break the law to get it. But short of that, money can do anything for you. Most important of all, it makes the weak strong. It changes you instantly and completely. In a good, even great way. You, dear friend, can have the life you always wanted with money. It makes the fat thin. Don’t do anything violent or criminal to get it. But work hard. Work smart. And above all, save, save, save.

As Mr. Buffett says, there is no such thing as saving too much. There is only saving too little. Do not let yourself fall into that deadly trap.

If Mr. Buffett says it, it has to be true. You’ll never wake up at 3 a.m. worrying you saved too much. But the opposite can and will kill you.

I’ll tell you a few unusual ways to save in a few days. It’s worth waiting for.
