Money poisons you when you've got it, and starves you when you haven't.
Being an MP feeds your vanity and starves your self- respect.Matthew Parris
I see that I've said something you don't like,Something uncouth and bold and terrifying,And yet, I'll tell you this:It won't be till each one of us is willing,Not you, not me, but every one of us,To hang upon a cross for every manWho suffers, starves and dies,Fight his sore battles as they were our own,And help him from the darkness and the mire,That there will be no crosses and no tyrants,No Herods and no slaves.stephen vincent benét
While the grass grows the steed starves. (Strauss, 1994 p. 1228)
The year goes wrong, and tares grow strong, Hope starves without a crumb; But God's time is our harvest time, And that is sure to come.
