• Riches are oft by guilt and baseness earn'd;
    Or dealt by chance to shield a lucky knave,
    Or throw a cruel sunshine on a fool.
    But for one end, one much-neglected use,
    Are riches worth your care; (for nature's wants
    Are few, and without opulence supplied;)
    This noble end is, to produce the soul;
    To show the virtues in their fairest light;
    To make humanity the minister
    Of bounteous Providence; and teach the breast
    The generous luxury the gods enjoy.
