The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
 
Concerning Wealth. V.
(From the “Antigone” of Sophocles)

By Sophocles

(Greek tragic poet, c.496 B.C.–406 B.C.)
 
NO such ill device
Ever appeared, as money to mankind:
This is it that sacks cities, this routs out
Men from their homes, and trains and turns astray
The minds of honest mortals, setting them        5
Upon base actions; this revealed to men
Habits of all misdoing, and cognizance
Of every work of wickedness.
