Improvidence
 
  Buy what thou hast no need of, and ere long thou shalt sell thy necessaries.
Benjamin Franklin.    
  1
  There are men born under that constellation which maketh them, I know not how, as unapt to enrich themselves as they are ready to impoverish others.
Hooker.    
  2
  It has always been more difficult for a man to keep than to get; for, in the one case, fortune aids, which often assists injustice; but in the other case, sense is required. Therefore, we often see a person deficient in cleverness rise to wealth; and then, from want of sense, roll head over heels to the bottom.
Count Basil.
