John Jacob Astor–one of American’s first multi-millionaires said, –the man who makes it the habit of his life to go to bed at nine o’clock usually gets rich and is always reliable. Of course, going to bed doesn’t make him rich, I merely meant such a man will in all probability be up early in the morning, and do a big day’s work, so his weary bones put him to bed early. Rogues do their work at night. Honest men work by day. Its all a matter of habit and good habits in America make any man rich. Wealth is a result of habit.
