By Orison Swett Marden
Never forget that, when honestly made, the money which comes to you in the pursuit of your legitimate vocation, is... the measure of your worth in the community you serve. - from "How Riches Take Wings"
In these uncertain economic times, the wisdom of self-help pioneer Orison Swett Marden is just as vital today as it was a century ago. A forerunner of Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen R. Covey and Anthony Robbins, and one of the prime figures in the early motivational movement, Marden explains why learning to manage money is the key to personal happiness and security. In inspiring terms, he explores: . the foundations of fortune . how to say "No!" to the temptation to buy . the hidden costs of debt . the unspoken requirement for making money . how saving small amounts can set you on the road to wealth . how "judicious liberality promotes prosperity" . and much more. First published in 1901, Economy makes plain that money is "an excellent servant but a terrible master." Also available from Cosimo Classics: Marden's two-volume Pushing to the Front and Cheerfulness as a Life Power.
