Quotes: Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Taking quotes from books is new to me, but since moon reader does it so effortlessly, I have some notes.
The two dads book takes as lot of flak on the internet and certainly from some people who seem to be writing the same style books with less success. I do wonder where these people find the time to write page after page of out of context crap.

That being said, I enjoyed these following passages 🙂

“one dad had a habit of saying, “I can’t afford it.” The other dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted I say, “How can I afford it?” One is a statement, and the other is a question. One lets you off the hook, and the other forces you to think”

““There is a difference between being poor and being broke. – Broke is temporary, and poor is eternal.””

“Instead, rich dad required his children to say, “How can I afford it?” His reasoning, the words “I can’t afford it” shut down your brain. It didn’t have to think anymore. “How can I afford it’” opened up the brain. Forced it to think and search for answers.”

“I’ve noticed that my friends with money talk about money. And I do not mean brag. They’re interested in the subject. So I learn from them, and they learn from me. My friends, whom I know are in dire straits financially, do not like talking about money, business or investing. ”

(Rich Dad, Poor Dad)
