The secret of gaining wealth has been reduced to seven words by Robert Louis Stevenson:--
"Earn a little, spend a little less."

"Donít work for a mere living; show a profit for your work every week; have something left from your earnings after all your expenses are paid." A son of a famous railway magnate was put at work every summer during his vacations from school and college. One summer he fired an engine; another summer he was a member of a surveying party; so that when time came for him to take his place on board of directors of various railroad lines, he knew business which he was going to direct. He also knew life of a fireman on a freight engine, and could have earned his living in that calling, if fortune had taken wings and left him dependent entirely upon his own work.
