Poverty and riches often change places. The Crash taught the world this truth, although the world will not long remember the lesson. Poverty may, and generally does, voluntarily take the place of riches. When riches take the place of poverty, the change is usually brought about through well-conceived and carefully executed PLANS. Poverty needs no plan. It needs no one to aid it, because it is bold and ruthless. Riches are shy and timid. They have to be “attracted.” Riches are shy and timid. They have to be “attracted.”
Anybody can wish for riches, and most
People do, but only a few know that a
definite plan, plus a burning desire
for wealth, are the only dependable
means of accumulating wealth.
~ Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich (1937)
