337 - Richness makes people arrogant...poverty makes them despondent

Richness makes people arrogant, rebellious and wicked, and poverty makes them despondent and lethargic. If they have to work, they work lazily and if they put up a demand they do it stubbornly. Under the influence of inordinate cravings, they commit sins in quick succession and keep on postponing repentance

Mola Ali (a.s) Ibn e Abu Talib (a.s)
Ref: Nahjul Balagha [ Saying # 150 (part) ]
