Valerius Maximus 9.4.praef. (tr. D.R. Shackleton Bailey):
Let Avarice too be dragged forth, tracker-down of hidden gains, greedy sucker-in of visible plunder, never happy in the enjoyment of possession and most miserable in the craving of acquisition.

protrahatur etiam Avaritia, latentium indagatrix lucrorum, manifestae praedae avidissima vorago, neque habendi fructu felix et cupiditate quaerendi miserrima.
