    Make the hoar leprosy ador'd; place thieves,

      - William Shakespeare

We are all bastards,
  And that most venerable man which I
    Did call my father was I know not where
      When I was stamped. Some coiner with his tools
        Made me a counterfeit; yet my mother seemed
          The Dian of that time.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Posthumus at II, v)

Good Sir John, I sue for yours--not to charge you--for I must let you understand I think myself in better plight for a lender than you are, the which hath something emboldened me to this unseasoned intrusion; for they say if money go before, all ways do lie open.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merry Wives of Windsor

        The Taming of the Shrew

Solvency is entirely a matter of temperament and not of income.
