Henceforth ye may thieve with better knowledge whence lucre should be won, and learn that it is not well to love gain from every source. For thou wilt find that ill-gotten pelf brings more men to ruin than to weal.
The trusts and combinations the communism of pelf whose machinations have prevented us from reaching the success we deserved, should not be forgotten nor forgiven.grover cleveland
Whate'er the passion, knowledge, fame, or pelf, Not one will change his neighbor with himself.Alexander Pope
Despite those titles, power, and pelf, The wretch, concentred all in self, Living, shall forfeit fair renown, And, doubly dying, shall go down To the vile dust from whence he sprung, Unwept, unhonour'd and unsung.walter scott
From fear in every guise, From sloth, from love of pelf, By war's great sacrifice The world redeems itself.john davidson
