as many privileges as it provides, IT DOES NOT, AND CANNOT BRING RICHES
There is but one dependable method of accumulating, and legally holding riches,
and that is by rendering useful service. No system has ever been created by which
men can legally acquire riches through mere force of numbers, or without giving
in return an equivalent value of one form or another.
There is a principle known as the law of ECONOMICS! This is more than a theory.
It is a law no man can beat. Mark well the name of the principle, and remember
it, because it is far more powerful than all the politicians and political machines. 123 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH It is above and beyond the control of all the labor unions. It cannot be swayed,
nor inﬂuenced nor bribed by racketeers or self-appointed leaders in any calling.
Moreover, IT HAS AN ALL-SEEING EYE, AND A PERFECT SYSTEM OF BOOKKEEPING, in which it keeps an accurate account of the transactions of every human being engaged in the business of trying to get without giving. Sooner or later

HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF CLEARING OUT! Always there are other countries,
such as Germany, Russia, and Italy, where one may try one’s hand at enjoying
freedom, and accumulating riches providing one is not too particular.
America provides all the freedom and all the opportunity to accumulate riches
that any honest person may require. When one goes hunting for game, one selects
hunting grounds where game is plentiful. When seeking riches, the same rule
would naturally obtain.
If it is riches you are seeking, do not overlook the possibilities of a country whose
citizens are so rich that women, alone, spend over two hundred million dollars
annually for lip-sticks, rouge and cosmetics. Think twice, you who are seeking
riches, before trying to destroy the Capitalistic System of a country whose citizens
spend over ﬁfty million dollars a year for GREETING CARDS, with which to express their appreciation of their FREEDOM!
If it is money you are seeking, consider carefully a country that spends hundreds
