THE BEGGAR AND THE KING

It were infinitely better to be poor, clothed in rags and living in virtue, than to be a king and living in wickedness; since the poor man in himself enjoys all the delights of the soul, and doth not even perceive his outward poverty for his inward riches.

But the king, luxurious in those things which do not at all belong to him, is punished in those things which are his most real concern -- his soul, his thoughts and his conscience.

St. John Chrysostom
