"The Five Laws of Gold:

Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.

Golf laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks in the field.

Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.

Gold slippeth away from the man who invests it in businesses or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.

Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment."
