The Gold Lender of Babylon

If you desire to help a friend, do so in a manner that does not make their burden yours

Those in the throes of great emotion are not safe risks

The wise lender wishes not the risk of the undertaking, but the guarantee of safe repayment

The first desire is safety

The second desire is that it earn more gold

Better a little caution than a great regret

The Walls of Babylon

We cannot afford to be without adequate protection

The Camel Trader of Babylon

He who spends more than he earns is sowing the winds of needless self-indulgence from which he is sure to reap the whirlwinds of trouble and humiliation.

A free man looks at life as a series of problems to be solved and solves them, while the soul of a slave whines.

Where the determination is, the way will be found.

The Luckiest Man in Babylon

Thou can’t get ahead by shirking

Work is the best friend I’ve ever had, it brings me all the good things I’ve ever had

Decide what thou desires to accomplish and then work will aid thee to achieve it.
