10. Riches

The Philosopher
Ecclesiastes ch5 vv10-12

If you love money, you will never be satisfied;
if you long to be rich, you will never get all you want.
It is useless.
The richer you are, the more mouths you must feed.
All you gain is the knowledge that you are rich.
Workers may not have enough to eat, but at least they can get a good night's sleep.
The rich, however, have so much that they stay awake worrying.
