    The wealthiest man among us is the best:
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    For by superior energies; more strict
    Affiance in each other; faith more firm
    In their unhallowed principles, the bad
    Have fairly earned a victory o’er the weak,
    The vacillating, inconsistent good.
    —William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
