A mere madness, to live like a wretch and die rich.

[The rich] are indeed rather possessed by their money than possessors.
To enlarge or illustrate this power and effect of love is to set a candle in the sun.
They are proud in humility; proud in that they are not proud.
Like him in Æsop, he whipped his horses withal, and put his shoulder to the wheel.
Though it rain daggers with their points downward.
One religion is as true as another.
Rob Peter, and pay Paul.
He is only fantastical that is not in fashion.
They do not live but linger.
