Put the Ego Away

I was doing some research and stumbled across the work of the seventeenth century British cleric and author, Jeremy Taylor. His dry wit is wonderful. He didn't think much of rich people looking down on others as you will see from this quote:
He that is proud of riches is a fool. For if he is exalted above his neighbors because he has more gold, how much inferior is he to a gold mine.
True enough. Thanks, Jeremy!
