Why can’t people be too poor

  Compared with people who have never really experienced poverty, those who have experienced poverty are more afraid of poverty and more prone to waste. People of good background are usually more cautious about the future than those who get rich overnight, and are more temperate in life. At first glance, poverty does not seem too scary. People who are born rich see wealth as something that cannot live without it, like air. They are methodical, budget-conscious, and diligent and frugal, and have been protecting their property throughout their lives.
  People in poverty for generations have become accustomed to poverty. If an accidental opportunity made him rich, he would regard this as a huge surplus, which should be used for enjoyment or waste. Even if he ran out of money, at most he was beaten back to his original form, the same as before. People of this kind have overconfidence in their destiny and their abilities. Unlike those who are born rich, they do n’t think that poverty is a bottomless pit that ca n’t be crawled out of. Even if they fell into poverty again, they would only think that it would be better to start from the beginning and fight over.
  This characteristic in human nature explains why women who were born poor before marriage usually have more desires and are more prone to waste than those who bring a large dowry to their husbands. The wealthy family brought to their husbands not only a piece of property, but also the desire in the blood to protect the property more strongly than the poor girl. If anyone doubts this and thinks that the conclusion should be the opposite, then he can find authoritative support in Ariosto’s first satire. However, Dr. Johnson agrees with me. He said: “A wealthy woman, accustomed to the use of the money will be judiciously spend money; but a woman was the first time to grasp the economic power at the wedding was eager to spend money, often spending billions of dollars and a spendthrift.”
  The initial life, have The more it is, the easier it is to maintain the independence of the individual, that is, you can live comfortably without hard work. Even if you only have enough to live like this, and ca n’t take care of the whole family, it is also an advantage that cannot be underestimated. This means that immunity to the chronic disease of poverty means freedom from manual labor. Only those who are so favored by God can be said to be born free, and masters of his own time and power.
  The difference between a person earning a hundred dollars and a person earning a thousand dollars is much smaller than that between a person earning a hundred dollars and a penniless person. When a highly wealthy person inherits a large amount of family property, then this property will play its greatest value: this kind of person can be said to have doubled the destiny, no need to labor, and can only live for his own talent. He can create works that can serve the general public and enhance his own honor, and achieve achievements that others can’t reach; or use his wealth to carry out philanthropy and better serve his compatriots.
  If a person does nothing, does not plan to try to do it, or even thinks about learning to improve himself, then even if he is born rich, he is just a lazy man, a thief of time, a shameful idler .
  Like him, he will not feel happy, even if he is free from poverty, he will be pushed to the other extreme of human suffering-boredom. This is undoubtedly a torment for him, if poverty makes him have to travel, it may be better. When this kind of person is bored, he is more prone to waste and eventually loses this advantage that he thinks is worthless to himself.
