Dr. Nelson Mandela once said: “It was the very opposite of grand, but it was my first true home of my own and I was mightily proud. A man is not a man until he has a house of his own...and now I had a home of my own choice far away from my birthplace and had made progress, however little, mainly through my own initiative and resources”
"Thus come many blessings to the man who owneth his own house. And greatly will it reduce his cost of living, making available more of his earnings for pleasures and the gratification of his desires. This, then, is the fifth cure for a lean purse: Own thy own home" George Clason (The Richest Man In Babylon).
