Short Link to this Quote:
Lord Byron says he kept sequins in a drawer to count and cry over them because he had “imbibed such a love for money” that the sequins reminded him of how little money he had.
Sequins, being shiny coins or pieces of metal, represented money to him. Counting them and crying showed that he missed having more actual money and the freedom or comfort it could provide. The quote suggests Lord Byron had developed an obsession with money due to a lack of it.
