Do You Know???

In 1923, do you know who was:

President of the largest steel company?
President of the largest gas company?
President of the New York Stock Exchange?
Greatest wheat speculator?
President of the Bank of International Settlement?
Great Bear of Wall Street?
The winner of the US Open and PGA Tournaments?

These men were considered among the worlds most successful. At least they were at the peak of their money making careers. Now, more than 55 years later, do you know what became of them???

The President of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper.
The President of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, became insane.
The President of the NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.
The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
The president of the Bank of International Settlement shot himself.
The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Rivermore, died a suicide.
Gene Sarazan, who won the US Open & PGA Tournaments in 1923, continued playing golf professionally and personally until his death on May 13, 1999, at the age of 97.

And The Moral of the Story is:

STOP WORRYING ABOUT BUSINESS AND PLAY GOLF.
