20 Valuable Quotes From The Richest Man In Babylon

Published

on

The book ‘The Richest Man In Babylon’ by George S. Clason is a personal development classic. It has been read and enjoyed by millions of people from around the world.

Originally released as a separate series of pamphlets in banks and insurance companies offering simple to understand financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. These became so popular that they were then put together and published as a book in 1926.

I can still remember when I went to the book store over 30 years ago to look for a copy. The shop assistant had never heard of it, and asked me was it an autobiography? She was surprised when I told her that it was a personal development classic, she was even more surprised when she saw on the cover that over 2 million copies had been sold of this little 144 page book.

If you have never read The Richest Man In Babylon, I highly recommend that you take action and get yourself a copy. In the meantime, to give you a flavor of the valuable wisdom contained in this great little book, here are my favorite quotes from The Richest Man In Babylon.
