Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.

小开支也要多计算,小小洞可以沉大船。

俭朴是富总推崇的美德之一。富总在1758年的《致富之路》中这样叙述俭朴:

What maintains one vice, would bring up two children. You may think perhaps that a little tea, or a little punch now and then, diet a little more costly, clothes a little finer, and a little entertainment now and then, can be no great Matter; but many a little makes a mickle, and farther, beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship, and again, who dainties love, shall beggars prove, and moreover, fools make Feasts, and wise men eat them.

一项恶习往往会滋养出两个小恶习。你或许会认为,时不时地喝一点茶或者喝一点潘趣酒,时不时地吃一顿奢侈一点的大餐、买一件昂贵一点的衣服、举行一些娱乐活动,并不是什么大事。但是,积少成多,集腋成裘。并且,小开支也要多计算;小小洞可以沉大船。此外,那些一味热衷于美味佳肴的人,最终将沦为街头的乞丐;并且,傻子准备盛宴,聪明人赴宴吃饭。

富总年轻时候经常到别人家蹭饭吃?这样致富的招数,富总您也分享给我们?
