Wealth
 
  Wealth, like rheum, falls upon the weakest parts.
            —Anonymous
  1
  Wealth is like a child’s rattle, which pleases for a moment, and is enjoyed no more.
            —Robert Burton
  2
  His wealth increaseth, and the more he hath, the more he wants: like Pharaoh’s lean kine, which devoured the fat, and were not satisfied.
            —Robert Burton
  3
  Wealth is like a viper, which is harmless if a man knows how to take hold of it; but if he does not, it will twine round his hand and bite him.
            —Saint Clement
