A Mean and Ridiculous Thing

Montaigne, Essais III, 9 (tr. Charles Cotton):
What a mean and ridiculous thing it is for a man to study his money, to delight in handling and telling it over and over again!

O le vilain et sot estude, d'estudier son argent, se plaire à le manier et recomter!

Conrad Meyer, The Usurer
