Poverty is a virtue. So says St. Francis de Sales. "No man is ready ever to admit that he is avaricious. Everyone denies having so base and mean a heart."
OK. I won't admit that I'm avaricious. Those times I bought 6/49 tickets in the hope of launching into an early and comfortable retirement, it wasn't really me doing it. Actually, I had honourable motives. Gotta feed, clothe and educate those four kids, you know. A couple million bucks would help that project.
