"The corrupting effects of wealth"

"OF all the corrupting effects of wealth there is none worse than this: that it makes the wealthy (and their parasites) think in some way divine, or at least a lovely character of the mind, that which is in truth nothing but their power of luxurious living. Heaven keep us all from great riches—I mean from very great riches!"

~Hilaire Belloc: The Path to Rome.
