How To Become Rich
A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money. The old guy
fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932, the depth
of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel. I invested that
nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the
end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents.
The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the
entire day polishing them and sold them at
5:00 PM for 20 cents.
I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a
fortune of $3.50.
Then my wife's father died and left us ten million dollars."
