Understanding the Seven Habits of Wealth

Some people call me “cheap”.  Most people call me “cheap”.  I have financial goals that I want to meet.  Modesty is at the heart of this endeavor and is reflection on how I prefer to live.  So I read on these topics often.  A recent article that I especially enjoyed is Understanding the Seven Habits of Wealth. The article takes some excellent life aphorisms and applies them to the world of personal finance.  Here are some of them.
On hard work - By working hard, old man, I hope to make something good one day. I haven’t yet, but I am pursuing it and fighting for it. — Vincent van Gogh

On modest living – A just and reasonable modesty does not only recommend eloquence, but sets off every great talent which a man can be possessed of. — Joseph Addison

On balance – The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. — Carl Gustav Jung
