Besides, you know
  Prosperity's the very bond of love,
    Whose fresh complexion and whose heart together
      Affliction alters.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Camillo at IV, iv)

Make money and the whole nation will conspire to call you a gentleman.
      - George Bernard Shaw

Prosperity, alas! is often but another name for pride.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney

To bring the best human qualities to anything like perfection, to fill them with the sweet juices of courtesy and charity, prosperity, or, at all events, a moderate amount of it, is required,--just as sunshine is needed for the ripening of peaches and apricots.
      - Alexander Smith

They who lie soft and warm in a rich estate seldom come to heat themselves at the altar.
      - Bishop Robert South

Happy it were for us all if we bore prosperity as well and as wisely as we endure adverse fortune.
      - Robert Southey

Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

Prosperity is the touchstone of virtue; for it is less difficult to bear misfortunes than to remain uncorrupted by pleasure.
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus)

Many are not able to suffer and endure prosperity; it is like the light of the sun to a weak eye,--glorious indeed in itself, but not proportioned to such an instrument.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Prosperities can only be enjoyed by those who fear not at all to lose them.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Prosperity makes few friends.
  [Fr., La proserite fait peu d'amis.]
      - Luc de Clapier de Vauvanargues, Reflexions
         (XVII)

Prosperity doth bewitch men, seeming clear;
  As seas do laugh, show white, when rocks are near.
      - John Webster, White Devil (act V, sc. 6)

O how portentous is prosperity!
  How, comet-like, it threatens, while it shines!
      - Edward Young

There is ever a certain languor attending the fulness of prosperity. When the heart has no more to wish, it yawns over its possessions, and the energy of the soul goes out, like a flame that has no more to devour.
      - Edward Young

Oh, how portentous is prosperity!
  How comet-like, it threatens while it shines.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night V, l. 915)
