       Roosevelt asked the American public to turn in their gold in 1933, for which they were paid $20.22 per ounce in paper money. He then raised the price of gold to $35 an ounce. In other words, for every $20.22 in gold that was turned in, the public was cheated out of about $15… If anyone was caught holding gold coins, the punishment was a $10,000 fine and ten years in jail. One reason for doing this was to get the public used to paper money as the sole currency of the world. – Robert Kiyosaki

It’s really and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don’t love, if you’re not having fun doing it, you don’t really love it, you’re gonna give up. And that’s what happens to most people actually. If you really look at the ones that ended up, you know, being “successful” in the eyes of society and the ones that didn’t, often times, it’s the ones that are successful love what they did so they could persevere. You know, when it got really tough. And the ones that didn’t love it quit. – Steve Jobs

One person’s in charge of iPhone OS software, one person is in charge of Mac hardware, one person is in charge of iPhone hardware engineering, another person is in charge of worldwide marketing, another person is in charge of operations. It’s organized like a start-up. We’re the biggest start-up on the planet. – Steve Jobs

       Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Steve Jobs

       Ad campaigns are necessary for competition; IBM’s ads are everywhere. But good PR educates people; that’s all it is. You can’t con people in this business. The products speak for themselves. – Steve Jobs

Because if they fall in love with Apple, everything else will take care of itself. They’ll want to do what’s best for Apple, not what’s best for them, what’s best for Steve, or anybody else. – Steve Jobs

·      Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching.

·      Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons (Deuteronomy 4:9).

·      There is a grievous evil which I [Solomon] have seen . . . riches were lost through a bad investment . . . (Ecclesiastes 5:13-14). -  Avoid Those Risky Investments.

·      There is another problem I have seen everywhere – savings are put into risky investments that turn sour, and soon there is nothing left to pass on to one’s son. The man who speculates is soon back to where he began – with nothing. This, as I have said, is a serious problem, for all his hard work has been for nothing; he has been working for the wind. It is all swept away (Ecclesiastes 5:13-16, TLB)

·      These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).





·      You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.  And you shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up (Deuteronomy 11:18-19).

·      Only the Lord give you [Solomon] discretion and understanding . . . so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you shall prosper, if you are careful to observe the statutes and the ordinances which the Lord commanded Moses. . . (1 Chronicles 22:12-13).

·      . . . Observe and seek after all the commandments of the Lord your God in order that you may possess the good land and bequeath it to your sons after you forever (1 Chronicles 28:8).

·      An inheritance obtained too early in life is not a blessing in the end - Proverbs 20:21

·      “For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.  For we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies.  Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread.” - Those who are able to work should do everything that they can to be able to find work. -  2 Thessalonians 3:10-12

·      Psalm 50:10 says, “For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills.”  All money, all wealth, all things, and all resources belong to God.  He is the owner because He is the Creator.  We must never confuse earthly ownership with Who is ultimately on the throne of all.

·      A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest—then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber - Proverbs 6:10, 11
