: “Covetousness is the greatest of monsters, as well as the root of all evil.” –  William Penn

“Do not seek the fortune that greed gathers,
For its fruit is bitter in the day of enjoyment.
To protect his own prosperity from decline
One must not crave the property held by others.”
Tirukkural 18: 177-178

“Mine, not thine, this sense of greed is the root of all evil. This distinction is applied even to God! – my God, not yours! Your God, notmine!” Sri Sathya Sai Baba
