Machiavel says virtue and riches seldom settle on one man.robert burton
If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.dwight l. moody
Palestine was the West Point and Annapolis for the world.

Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments Will hum about mine ears; and sometimes voices, That, if I then had wak'd after long sleep, Will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming, The clouds methought would open and show riches Ready to drop upon me, that, when I wak'd, I cried to dream again.
…All control of power is with the Hindus because they are the only people who are industrious and adaptable. riches and prosperity are theirs, while Muslims have nothing but poverty and misery.
