|"If you have not acquired more than a bare existence in the years since we were youths, it is because you have either failed to learn the laws that govern the building of wealth, or else you do not observe them. ‘Fickle fate’ is a vicious goddess who brings no permanent good to anyone…makes wanton spenders, who soon dissipate al they receive."
Easy money doesn’t stick around is what Arkad preaches. So true. Think of people close to you who have won lotteries and the like. The far majority are without today!
Arkad was asked the obvious question about how he has acquired his fortune. He made an assessment from his early years that the things that brought happiness and contentment were magnified by the existence of wealth.
“Wealth is power. With wealth many things are possible.”
