One man's great treasure

Is another's worthless dust.

Life is irony.

When a man has money, all are willing to lend to him. When he does not, the moneylenders are reticent. Yet a man with a store of wealth can live well on nothing more than promises: he will pay, but tomorrow, never today. His creditors trust in his wealth, not necessarily in him. Honour, in the world of trade, is replaced by gold.
