- C.S. Lewis

The 7 deadly sins: Greed

November 10, 2019

“Among the rich you will never find a really generous man even by accident. They may give their money away, but they will never give themselves away; they are egotistic, secretive, dry as old bones. To be smart enough to get all that money you must be dull enough to want it.”― G.K. Chesterton
