The Greedy Poor

A Puritan take on Occupy Wall Street:

“As sick men used to love health better than those that never felt the want of it; so it is too common with poor men to love riches better than the rich that never lacked. And yet, poor souls, they deceive themselves, and cry out against the rich, as if they were the only lovers of the things of the world, when they love it more themselves though they cannot get it.” – Richard Baxter
