Pride in Poverty

By Confucius

(Chinese philosopher, c.551–479? B.C.)
RICHES and honor are what men desire; but if they attain to them by improper ways, they should not continue to hold them. Poverty and low estate are what men dislike; but if they are brought to such condition by improper ways, they should not feel shame for it.  1
