John Jacob Astor - Little Journeys
The man who makes it the habit of his life to go to bed at nine o&#146;clock, usually gets rich and is always reliable. Of course, going to bed does not make him rich&#8212;I merely mean that such a man will in all probability be up early in the morning and do a big day&#146;s work, so his weary bones put him to bed early. Rogues do their work at night. Honest men work by day. It&#146;s all a matter of habit, and good habits in America make any man rich. Wealth is a result of habit.
