The Prosperity Gospel

Plautus, Curculio 531 (tr. Wolfgang de Melo):
Him to whom the gods are well-disposed they really shower with profit.

quoi homini di sunt propitii, lucrum ei profecto obiciunt.
Plautus, Persa 470 (tr. Wolfgang de Melo):
If the gods are well disposed toward someone, they throw some profit his way.

quoi homini di propitii sunt, aliquid obiciunt lucri.
More at Renzo Tosi, Dictionnaire des sentences latines et grecques, tr. Rebecca Lenoir (Grenoble: Jérôme Millon, 2010), #558, p. 447.
