avarice

A Quote by Francis of Assisi on charity, wisdom, fear, ignorance, patience, humility, anger, vexation, poverty, joy, greed, avarice, peace, meditation, anxiety, and doubt

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.  Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation.  Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice.  Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.

Francis of Assisi

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on story, world, humans, caught, life, lives, thoughts, hungers, ambitions, avarice, cruelty, kindness, generosity, good, evil, well, and ill

"I believe that there is only one story in the world...Humans are caught--in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too--in a net of good and evil...A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean question: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well--or ill?"

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)
