Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Money
 
If at great things thou would’st arrive,
Get riches first, get health, and treasure heap,
Not difficult, if thou hearken to me:
Riches are mine, fortune is in my hand,
They whom I favour thrive in wealth amain,
While virtue, valour, wisdom, sit in want.
        Milton.—Par. Regained, Book II.
  1
O, what a world of vile ill-favour’d faults,
Looks handsome in three hundred pounds a-year!
        Shakespeare.—Merry Wives of Windsor, Act III. Scene 4.
  2
He that wants money, means, and content, is without three good friends.
        Shakespeare.—As You Like It, Act III. Scene 2.
  3
My friend, get money; get a large estate
By honest means; but get—at any rate.
        Francis’ Horace.—Book I. Epi. I. Line 93.
  4
Get place and wealth, if possible, with grace,
If not, by any means get wealth and place.
        Pope.—To Bolingbroke, Book I. Epi. I. Line 103.
