Souvenirs of Solitude ~ Poverty & Wealth
27 April, 2014
- Time is more precious than wealth. Gold is both bought and sold, but there is no trading of time
- There is no point to wealth without the time of rest to enjoy it.
- There is no point to accumulation for this is never satisfied.
- The thief knows not how to secure good things as too the pauper, but the thief is a robber and the pauper has been robbed.
- He who seeks poverty finds riches, but he who seeks riches sows to poverty.
- The Kingdom of God is found by the pauper, and the rich in spirit and body have little need of it.
- The seat of luxury rarely furnishes the Kingdom of Heaven's earthly rooms, for where there is wealth there is a competition for the heart of man. God will not give competitors to Himself.
- The love of money knows little of the wisdom of self-restraint.
- A pauper who sees heaven is wealthier than a magnate who doesn't. Only one banks in paradise.
- It is better to dwell in the tents of the desert, than in the mansions of the greedy.
- There is far more wealth in poverty than in wealth. It is the poor spirit that heaven pours its riches upon. The meek, the gentle, the lowly and the humble will know the wealth of heaven that no other man may receive.
Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist. When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven. (Proverbs 23:4-5)
