Dismiss avarice, that queen of disgraceful ills which all misdeeds serve with detestable devotion: greed strives for lucre, which no wise man craves and, as if steeped in malign poisons, weakens the manhood of body and soul and is abated neither by riches nor poverty. A miser has no goodness; he is base in every respect.
