The Danger of Covetousness: The World is Not Enough

A ship may be overladen with silver, even unto sinking, and yet space enough be left to hold ten times more. So a covetous man, though he have enough to sink him, yet never hath he enough to satisfy him…a circle cannot fill a triangle, so neither can the whole world fill the heart of a man; a man may as easily fill a chest with grace, as the heart with gold.

John Trapp
