Riches
 
  Riches are like muck which stinks in a heap, but spread abroad, make the earth fruitful.
            —Anonymous

Riches, like insects, while concealed they lie,
Wait but for wings, and in their season fly.
            —Alexander Pope

  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.
            —Ralph Venning
