Seneca: Riches Shut Off From Wisdom

Posted by admin on Saturday, July 14, 2018

Seneca Money Quote saying wealth prevents the gaining of wisdom for many; poverty is not weighed-down with worries about protecting their possessions when a fire threatens. Seneca said:
Riches shut off wisdom; poverty is unburdened and free from care Quote

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
