It fosters every virtue. It tcachea self-denial. It cultivates a sonso. of order. It trains to fore thought, and so broadens the mind. It reveals the meaning of the word busi ness, which is something very differ ent from its routine." S€lf-denial, a sense of order and fore thought aro the-.very vitals of business success. They are enough to win a modest success for anybody. They aro not hidden from the sight of anybody, but lie within tho reach of all. .And Mr. Munger believes that by acquiring the habit of saving you will g«t theso essentials as a by-product.
