The Prosperity Gospel
Him to whom the gods are well-disposed they really shower with profit.Plautus, Persa 470 (tr. Wolfgang de Melo):
quoi homini di sunt propitii, lucrum ei profecto obiciunt.
If the gods are well disposed toward someone, they throw some profit his way.More at Renzo Tosi, Dictionnaire des sentences latines et grecques, tr. Rebecca Lenoir (Grenoble: Jérôme Millon, 2010), #558, p. 447.
quoi homini di propitii sunt, aliquid obiciunt lucri.
