  • The Loan Ranger is out to get a debt sentence to put violators on debt row.


  • Few things are as potentially corrupting as is the pursuit of money.


  • Few things are as predictive of hardship as is the absence of money.


  • Living beyond oneís means, means that such living will be beyond sustaining.


  • It is often said that: "You only get out of something what you put into it." If this were true, mankind would have no material assets as the only source of wealth accumulation is by getting more out of something than one puts in to it.


  • A commonly overlooked fact is that wealth is created. Were this not so, we would have little more than the caveman. However, there are many that look at wealth accumulation as if it were stolen from those that have less, instead of becoming affluent by creating wealth.


  • Seldom are there shortcuts to success. Almost always, the shortest distance between where you are now and where you want to be is the straightest of straight lines.


  • Those that believe that optimism is a virtue and pessimism a fault, fail to take into account what is forthcoming. It is wise to be a pessimist and prepare for an adversity if in fact adversity arrives. It is foolish to be an optimist and not prepare for adversity should it arrive.


  • We often hear that familiarity breeds contempt, but in business, without familiarity, success is unlikely.


  • During the early years of this century, we saw how the corporate structure has been used to maximize gains for management while minimizing responsibility when caught.


  • Debt is a form of slavery not prohibited by the Thirteenth Amendment; but it is a form of voluntary servitude that is still slavery of a different sort.


  • Perhaps saints can be happy without money, but there are few of them in the stock market.


  • Many stock market authorities arenít.


  • The road to ruin is wide, straight, smooth, and downhill; while the road to success is narrow, winding, bumpy, and uphill. This is why so few are successful.


  • WALT HASKINS
