On the grave of a man whose life had been an ornament to his country & a benefit to his fellow men was this epitaph:
"My wealth consists not in the abundance of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants."
This man evidently had been mindful of the words of our Lord, that "a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth" (Luke 12:15).
“Possessions only provide temporary happiness.” - Rick Warren.
“The rich man is not one who is in possession of much, but one who gives much.” - John Chrysostom.
