    Some men have a fool­ish habit of telling their busi­ness se­crets. If they make money they like to tell their neigh­bors how it was done. Noth­ing is gained by this, and oft­times much is lost. Say noth­ing about your prof­its, your hopes, your ex­pec­ta­tions, your in­ten­tions. And this should ap­ply to let­ters as well as to con­ver­sa­tion. Goethe makes Mephistophiles say: “Never write a let­ter nor de­stroy one.” Busi­ness men must write let­ters, but they should be care­ful what they put in them. If you are los­ing money, be spe­cially cau­tious and not tell of it, or you will lose your rep­u­ta­tion.

    If a man has plenty of money, he ought to in­vest some­thing in ev­ery­thing that ap­pears to prom­ise suc­cess, and that will prob­a­bly ben­e­fit mankind; but let the sums thus in­vested be mod­er­ate in amount, and never let a man fool­ishly jeop­ar­dize a for­tune that he has earned in a le­git­i­mate way, by in­vest­ing it in things in which he has had no ex­pe­ri­ence.

    The Roth­schilds have an­other maxim: “Never have any­thing to do with an un­lucky man or place.” That is to say, never have any­thing to do with a man or place which never suc­ceeds, be­cause, al­though a man may ap­pear to be hon­est and in­tel­li­gent, yet if he tries this or that thing and al­ways fails, it is on ac­count of some fault or in­fir­mity that you may not be able to dis­cover but nev­er­the­less which must ex­ist.
