‚But with our industry we must likewise be steady, settled, and careful, and oversee our own affairs with our own eyes, and not trust too much to others: for, as Poor Richard says,

„I never saw an oft-removed tree,
Nor yet an oft-removed family,
That throve so well as those that settled be.”

And again, „Three removes are as bad as a fire,” and again, „Keep thy shop, and thy shop will keep thee:” and again, „If you would have your business done, go; if not, send.” And again,

„He that by the plow would thrive,
Himself must either hold or drive.”

‚And again, „The eye of the master will do more work than both his hands:” and again, „Want of care does us more damage than want of knowledge;” and again, „Not to oversee workmen, is to leave them your purse open.”

‚Trusting too much to others’ care is the ruin of many; for, „In the affairs of this world, men are saved, not by faith, but by the want of it:” but a man’s own care is profitable; for, „If you would have a faithful servant, and one that you like, — serve yourself. A little neglect may breed great mischief; for want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost;” being overtaken and slain by the enemy; all for want of a little care about a horse-shoe nail.
