*Time is money
do not forget. “Time” is money.
Suppose there is a man who works and earns ten shillings a day. If such a person walks about for half a day, or sits idle all the time, and spends only six shillings on recreation, that is not the whole expense. In fact, another five shillings was spent, or should be said to have been thrown away.
Advice to a Young Craftsman (1748)
★ “What can that person do?” is important.
I do not recommend going to America, an emerging country, for people who have nothing to offer other than being born well. It’s certainly worth it in Europe, but it’s utterly worthless in America.
In America, we don’t ask, “What kind of person is he?” “What can he do?” he asks.
If the person has any useful skill, it will be welcomed. Those who know him will look up to him if he can use his skills to do well. In America, it is respected by farmers and craftsmen alike. Because you are doing useful work.
