Wall Street Points Of View. A collection of Wall Street aphorisms, maxims, truisms, proverbs, opinions and points of view, follows: Hear-say is half lies. Talk little and well. Control your temper. Enough is great riches. No one is always right. The first loss is the best. All players cannot win. Press luck to the finish. There is luck in leisure. Cheap advice is plentiful. A true word needs no oath. Done leisurely--done well. Negotiate before slaughter. . When in doubt do nothing. After one loss comes many. Wall Street easily forgets. Great vaunters, little doers. Learn to take a loss quickly. Information makes a market. Nothing risked, nothing won. For a lost thing care nothing. Losses make us more cautious. Little and often fills the purse. All is not lost that is in peril. When wisdom fails, luck helps. Punctual pay gets willing loan. Let profits run- limit all losses. Some men learn only by failing. Losers are always in the wrong. Cut a loss and let a profit run. A thing well bought is half sold. A plunger gets but seldom holds. Interrogate before you negotiate. Money is most valued when lost. Everyone is wise after the event. At a great bargain make a pause. Dont buy an egg until it is laid. Under fair words beware of fraud. Liberal hands make many friends. Novelty always appears handsome. DEGREESBusiness neglected is business lost. After extreme weakness buy stocks. More sheep than lambs are sheared. Better lose the wool than the sheep. It is fortune, not wisdom that rules. Fraud is built on misrepresentation. Dont put all your eggs in one basket. Better lose the saddle than the horse. The market will be here to-morrow. Small losses often prove great gains. Men..often .seem rich to become rich. Inspiration .often..mea
