A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on anxiety, greed, interest, and order

A shrewd man has to arrange his interests in order of importance and deal with them one by one; but often our greed upsets this order and makes us run after so many things at once that through over-anxiety to obtain the trivial, we miss the most important.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
