How can you be generous with others if you are stingy with yourself, if you are not willing to enjoy your own wealth?
To whom will they be generous that are stingy with themselves and do not enjoy what is their own?
If one is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
If one is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
If one is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
If one is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
If a man is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
If a man is mean to himself, to whom will he be generous? He will not enjoy his own riches.
To what other man shall he be good, which is wicked to himself? and he shall not be merry in his goods. [Who to himself is shrewd (or depraved), to what other shall he be good? and he shall not be merry in his goods.]
