A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on cleverness, defeat, gold, interest, order, organize, trifle, and worth

A clever man should organize his self-interests in the order of their worth. Greediness often defeats its own end, by making us scratch for every trifle when we should dig for gold alone.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
