TO THE HOMES OF
GREAT BUSINESS MEN
BY ELBERT HUBBARD
JOHN J. ASTOR
The man who makes it the habit of his life to go to bed at nine
o'clock, usually gets rich and is always reliable. Of course,
going to bed does not make him rich--I merely mean that such a
man will in all probability be up early in the morning and do a
big day's work, so his weary bones put him to bed early. Rogues
do their work at night. Honest men work by day. It's all a
matter of habit, and good habits in America make any man rich.
Wealth is a result of habit.
--JOHN JACOB ASTOR
