Give more 63


Give more
Then you get
And get more
Than you give 

I read these lines in 1965 
In Think and Grow Rich
Around the same time I met
Sol Kapal the owner of Coast Photo
He explained to me why I should
Raise the prices on
The steel rule dies I was making for him
His wise and generous ways
Inspired me for a lifetime
To always look out for the other person
In any transaction I was involved in
50-50 is fine
But I would always try to get 45
The other 5% is goodwill capital
It has come back to me in many ways
Great referrals
Patients when late deliveries
Not having to give estimates
Because of customer confidence
In the fairness of my pricing

Give more
Then you get
And get more
Than you give
