| Riches are like muck which stinks in a heap, but spread abroad, make the earth fruitful.|
|Riches, like insects, while concealed they lie,|
Wait but for wings, and in their season fly.
| Worldly riches are like nuts; many clothes are torn in getting them, many a tooth broken in cracking them, but never a belly filled with eating them.|
