AND ever o’er the trade he bent,
And ever lived on earth content.
(He did God’s will, to him, all one
If on the earth or in the sun.)
Robert Browning

WE all suffer ourselves to be too much concerned about a little poverty; but such considerations should not move us in the choice of that which is to be the business and justification of so great a portion of our lives; and like the missionary, the patriot, or the philosopher, we should all choose that poor and brave career in which we can do most and best for mankind.
Robert Louis Stevenson

SUCH things, and so much of them, as each man can use are well for him, or Wealth; and more of them, or any other things, are ill for him, or ilth.
John Ruskin
