On Wealth



   A good wife and health are a man's best wealth.



   The greatest wealth is contentment with a little.



   He is richest that has fewest wants.



   Ready money works great cures.



   Money is a good servant, but a dangerous master.



   Little and often fills the purse.



   He is rich that is satisfied.



   I see nothing in the life of a rich man which the workman need 
   envy, outside the regularity and security of his existence. 

                                              St. John Ervine




   Money is a good servant, but a poor master. 

                                  D. Bouhours




   Make money your God, it will plague you like the devil. 

                                              Fielding




   Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust. 

                                              O. W. Holmes




   All love has something of blindness in it,  but the love of 
   money especially. 
   
                                                     South





   Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it.  There is 
   nothing in its nature to produce happiness.  The more a man 
   has, the more he wants.  Instead of its filling a vacuum, it 
   makes one.  If it satisfies one want, it doubles and triples 
   that want another way.  That was a true proverb of the wise 
   man, rely upon it:  "Better is little with the fear of the 
   Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith." 

                                                  Franklin




   Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can. 

                                            J. Wesley




   He that wants money, means, and content, is without three good 
   friends. 
   
                                              Shakespeare




   Men are seldom more innocently employed than when they are 
   honestly making money. 
   
                                                  Johnson




   Covetous men need money least, yet most affect and seek it;  
   prodigals who need it most, do least regard it. 

                                          Theodore Parker




   No man needs money so much as he who despises it. 

                                             Richter




   To possess money is very well;  to be possessed by it, is to be  
   possessed by a devil, and one of the meanest and worst kinds of 
   devils. 
   
                                                    Tryon Edwards




   The covetous man never has money;  the prodigal will have none 
   shortly. 
   
                                                Ben Johnson




   Remember that money is of a prolific, generating nature.  
   Money can beget money, and its offspring can beget money, and 
   so on.  Five shillings turned is six;  turned again it is 
   seven; and so on till it becomes hundreds of pounds.  The more 
   there is of it, the more it produces at every turning, so that 
   the profits rise quicker and quicker.  He that murders a crown, 
   destroys all that it might have produced, even scores of 
   pounds. 
   
                                                   Franklin





   It happens a little unluckily that the persons who have the 
   most infinite contempt of money are the same that have the 
   strongest appetite for the pleasures it procures. 

                                             Shenstone




   Ready money is Aladdin's lamp. 

                           Byron
