“Advice is one thing that is freely given away, but watch that you only take what is worth having.”
“The more of wisdom we know, the more we may earn. That man who seeks to learn more of his craft shall be richly rewarded.”
Gold lender Mathon’s advice on lending ,
When lending, only lend to those you trust, who are knowledgeable in their field and have the means to repay. If possible, you should even consider taking some collateral worth the value of the loan. This winning combination of factors ensures you’ll get your money back eventually.
The moral : It’s better to have a little caution than a great regret.
Babylon is under attack, and the citizens are afraid. The guard assures them all the walls will hold, as they are strong and fortified.
Babylon does survive the attack, and Clason uses this to illustrate that we need financial security throughout life. You never know when you’ll be under attack – whether you lose your job or have some emergency medical bills.

Dabasir was sold as a slave and was trained as a camel tender. One of his master’s wives, Sira, asks him if he has the soul of a free man or slave. After a while, he realizes he wants to repay his debts, so she helps to free him.
He works so hard to pay off his debts using a precise budget.
But in the end, he makes things right and proves he has the soul of a free man.
The moral : Where the determination is, a way can be found.
Sharru Nada was a slave working for a baker, where he made extra pastries and shared the money with his master. He wanted to work hard so he could buy back his freedom.
Unfortunately, his master gambled all his money, so Sharru was sold again and almost condemned to a hard labor life before his friend purchased him. His friend was able to do this because Sharru taught him about the value of hard work.
The moral : Hard work can be your best friend in times of distress and help you achieve many things.
“You’ve learned the lessons well.
You first learned to live on less than you earn.
Next you learned to seek advice from those who are competent.
Lastly, you’ve learned to make gold work for you.”
