    Quotes from Advantages of Poverty:

    “He said that he surrounded himself with assistants who knew more than he did—and he spurred them on to pile up millions for him. He was Scotch, but he wasn’t too Scotch. He let his partners share in his profits and he made more millionaires than any other man who has ever lived. For he declared it was a disgrace to die rich.”

    “The real question is not how much we ought to give away, but how much we dare retain for our own gratification.”

    “There is really no true charity except that which will help others to help themselves,

    and place within the reach of the aspiring the means to climb.”

    “Common humanity impels us to provide for the actual wants of human beings—

    to see, through our poor laws, that none die of starvation, and to provide comfortable

    shelter, clothing, and instruction, which should, however, always be dependent upon

    work performed.”

    Quotes from Acres of Diamonds by Russell Conwell:

    I know I am right; that the men and women sitting here, who found it difficult perhaps to buy a ticket to this lecture or gathering to-night, have within their reach “acres of diamonds,” opportunities to get largely wealthy.

    I say that you ought to get rich, and it is your duty to get rich.

    “Oh,” but says some young man here to-night, “I have been told all my life that if a person has money he is very dishonest and dishonorable and mean and contemptible.” My friend, that is the reason why you have none, because you have that idea of people.

    Money is power, and you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it. You ought because you can do more good with it than you could without it.

    While we should sympathize with God’s poor—that is, those who cannot help themselves—let us remember there is not a poor person in the United States who was not made poor by his own shortcomings, or by the shortcomings of someone else.

    The man who says, “I cannot carry my religion into business” advertises himself either as being an imbecile in business, or on the road to bankruptcy, or a thief, one of the three, sure.

    You cannot trust a man with your money who cannot take care of his own.

    I have no more right to sell goods without making a profit on them than I have to overcharge him dishonestly beyond what they are worth.

    The moment a young man or woman gets more money than he or she has grown to by practical experience, that moment he has gotten a curse.

    It is no help to your children to leave them money, but if you leave them education, if you leave

    them Christian and noble character, if you leave them a wide circle of friends, if you leave them an honorable name, it is far better than that they should have money.

A must listen!

As a current leader who was once (and sometime still is) one of Tracey’s “followers” it’s amazing to hear her speak with such enthusiasm about a subject we’ve been discussing for years! Very insightful! The Crisis Leadership series was delivered right on time and provides great tips on how to lead our teams in troubling times.
