- There are some who are worried from day to day about temporal matters as much as a year in advance. Those who are so concerned are never at rest…Hence our Lord teaches us to ask that our bread be given us today, i.e., whatever we need for the present. Spirit of Poverty, P. 51.
- None be fearful of poverty who have
acquired the riches of wisdom. Spirit of Poverty, P. 50.
