Give us this day our daily bread.
"Contentment is a jewel which turns all into gold, yea, want into wealth." Covetousness is a canker which eats into the richest robes and the costliest treasures; a dropsy which, the more it drinks, the more it thirsts.
(F. C. Blyth, M. A.)The wise man, as he looks forth upon the riches and luxuries with which the worldling loves to surround himself, learns to say with Socrates, "How many things there are that I do not want!"
