We are brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a blame to any people.
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek; and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. [Matthew 7:7-8]
Sow to the wind and you will reap a whirlwind.
