Superfluities
 
  It is impossible to diminish poverty by the multiplication of effects, for, manage as we may, misery and suffering will always cleave to the border of superfluity.
Jacobi.    
  1
  Were the superfluities of a nation valued, and made a perpetual tax or benevolence, there would be more alms-houses than poor, schools than scholars, and enough to spare for government besides.
William Penn.    
  2
  What man in his right senses, that has wherewithal to live free, would make himself a slave for superfluities? What does that man want who has enough? Or what is he the better for abundance that can never be satisfied.
L’Estrange.
