The joy of wealth is inconstant.
Wherever your heart is, there will be your treasure. The heart of a person whose major treasure is wealth is buried in filth.
Is it true people were created to collect more and more gold? No. God created people after His own image; He created you so that you could fulfill his will.
— Saint John Chrysostom
Why should a person be rich? Why should he have expensive horses, rich clothes, wonderful rooms, and the leisure to visit public places of entertainment? Because he does not have enough thoughts to accompany his intellect. Give this person the inner work of his intellect, and he will be happier than the richest man. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
For those who live a spiritual life, wealth is not only unnecessary but uncomfortable. It stops the development of one's real life.
