Did you know in 1923, the following men were considered some of the world's most successful men . . . at least they found the secret of making money. Whereas, in 1987, more than 60 yrs. later, do you know what became of these men?

The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper. The president of the largest gas company, Howard Hopson, went insane. The president of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad insolvent. The president of the Bank of International Settlement shot himself and the greatest bear on Wall Street, Casabee Rivermore, died by suicide.

The same year, 1923, the winner of the most important golf championship, Gene Sarazen, won the US Open and the PGA tournaments. Today he is still playing golf and is solvent.

Conclusion: Stop worrying about business and play golf!

Sorry everyone seems so upset that this is not a joke. It was not intended to be a joke -- it is a comment on everyday life and the nonimportance of accumulation of the almighty dollar.
