Hubert Howe Bancroft

A Quote by Hubert Howe Bancroft

Wealth in its nobler aspects is not an unworthy theme. There is nothing desirable or honorable in penury, nothing praiseworthy or attractive in want or dependence. Indigence leads not to intellectual culture or to a lofty standard of morality. Purity is not the offspring of poverty, but comes of that cleanliness of soul which is akin to godliness.
