Silver is of less value than gold, gold than virtue.
      - [Proverbs]

Small things become the small.

Sovereign money procures a wife with a large fortune, gets a man credit, creates friends, stands in place of pedigree, and even of beauty.
      - [Wealth]

Still rolls and to all time shall roll the tumbling flood.
      - [Proverbs]

      - [Proverbs]

Strength, wanting judgment and policy to rule, overturneth itself.
