Rules of A Merchant Prince

It is not the wages received, but the attention given to your duties that counts when future prosperity is considered. Do not exceed your income. A part of your salary should be put in the bank no matter how small or large it may be. Always be civil and polite. Civility is our cheapest commodity. No matter how high your position is, aim for the top. There is less competition there than at the bottom of the ladder. — HENRY C. LYTTON
