The Love of Riches

Cicero, De Officiis 1.20.68 (tr. Walter Miller):
Beware of ambition for wealth; for there is nothing so characteristic of narrowness and littleness of soul as the love of riches.

pecuniae fugienda cupiditas; nihil enim est tam angusti animi tamque parvi quam amare divitias.
José de Ribera, An Old Usurer
