Wealth: Is It Worth It?

Wealth: Is It Worth It?Wealth: Is It Worth It? by S. Truett Cathy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

S. Truett Cathy, the author of this book, has taught Sunday School in the town I grew up in Jonesboro, GA, for many years. Several of my high school classmates work for the corporate office in GA. I have admired Mr. Cathy for many years. He is not only a great business man but also a great Christian man. This book is his philosophy of wealth. I feel his thoughts are very close to that of the Bible. This is an easy read book. As you will see below there are quotes from lots of people. I trust you will enjoy these quotes:

Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.  ~Warren Buffett

No man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own.  ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.    ~Thomas Edison

If it takes seven days to make a living, you ought to be doing something else.   ~S. Truett Cathy

Ringing the cash register is not the name of the game. It’s only the scorekeeper, and it’s not what motivates me. I’m motivated in my business by the compliments I receive about our people, our service, and the quality of our food.   ~S. Truett Cathy

Love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.  ~S. Truett Cathy

In most cases we perform better when we’re busy than when we’re not busy. When we’re slow, our mind wanders. We’re not as attentive to our business. When we’re on the firing line, we’re sharper. We move more quickly and get the job done right. ~S. Truett Cathy

Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of it filling a vacuum, it makes one.  ~Benjamin Franklin

If you’re excited about what you’re doing, it’s a lot more likely that your employees will also be excited. People want to work for a person, not a company. It’s about relationships.  ~S. Truett Cathy

Opportunity presents itself sometimes in unusual situations. What you think is the worst thing turns out to be a good thing.  Different circumstances challenge people to do things they didn’t know they could do, and in those times when the outlook appears the worst, we find new reasons for optimism.  ~S. Truett Cathy

You know what ego stands for: Edging Out God!  ~S. Truett Cathy
