A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

You think that it is because I have3 an income which exempts me from your day-labour, that I waste (as you call it) my time in sun-gazing and star-gazing.  You do not know me.  If my debts, as they threaten, should consume what money I have, I should live just as I do now: I should eat worse food, and wear a courser coat, and should wander in a potato patch instead of in the wood - but it is I, not my twelve hundred dollars a year that love God.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
