Seneca: Poverty is Free from Care

Posted by admin on Wednesday, March 9, 2016

Seneca Money Quote saying riches often prevent men from gaining wisdom and poverty attends only to immediate needs. Seneca said:

Riches have shut off many a man from the attainment of wisdom; poverty is unburdened and free from care. When the trumpet sounds, the poor man knows that he is not being attacked; when there is a cry of “Fire,” he only seeks a way of escape, and does not ask what he can save
— Seneca
