Drive your business, let not you're business drive you.
Industry need not wish.

Industry need not wish, and he that lives upon hopes will die fasting. There are no gains without pains. He that hath a trade hath an estate, and he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor but then the trade must be worked at and the calling followed, or neither the estate nor the office will enable us to pay our taxes. If we are industrious, we shall never starve for at the workingmans house hunger looks in, but dares not enter. Nor will the bailiff or the constable enter, for industry pays debts, while idleness and neglect increase them.
He that hath a trade hath an estate he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor.
Industry and patience are the surest means of plenty.
Industry pays debts, while despair increaseth them
The way to wealth depends on just two words, industry and frugality.
The first mistake in public business is the going into it.
He that hath a Trade, hath an Estate.
No nation was ever ruined by trade.
Industry pays debts, despair increases them.
God gives all things to industry.
Industry, perseverance, and frugality make fortune yield.
