C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Mammon
 
        What treasures here do Mammon’s sons behold!
Yet know that all that glitters is not gold.
Quarles.    
  1
                Mammon led them on—
Mammon, the least erected Spirit that fell
From Heaven; for even in Heaven his looks and thoughts
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of Heaven’s pavement, trodden gold,
Than aught divine or holy else enjoyed
In vision, beatific.
Milton.    
  2
        Cursed Mammon be, when he with treasures
  To restless action spurs our fate!
Cursed when for soft, indulgent leisures,
  He lays for us the pillows straight.
Goethe.
