Thoughts From A Dead Person on Riches

Posted · Add Comment

Henry Smith was a Puritan from the 16th century. This is what he had to say about riches…

“Riches are like painted grapes, which look as though they would satisfy a man, but do not slake his hunger or quench his thirst. Riches indeed do make a man covet more, and get envy, and keep the mind in care.”

Found in Leland Ryken book, Worldly Saints: The Puritans As They Really Were.
