MAMMON, the least erected spirit that fell
From Heaven; for e’en in Heaven his looks and thoughts
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of Heaven’s pavement, trodden gold,
Than aught Divine or holy else enjoy’d
In vision beatific.
John Milton


HE poor think that none are worldlings and covetous but the rich. But he may love riches that wanteth them, as much as he that hath them. If thou lovest the world and worldly plenty inordinately, and covetest more, thou art a covetous worldling, though thou wish it not from another. It is the worldly mind and love of wealth that is the sin at the root; the way of getting it are but the branches.
Richard Baxter


IT is a Preposterous thing, that Men can venture their souls where they will not venture their Money! For they will take their Religion upon trust, but not trust a Synod about the Goodness of Half a Crown.
William Penn


FOR a small income, a long journey is undertaken; for everlasting life, many will scarce once lift a foot from the ground.
Thomas a Kempis
