The concord of brethren, and the love of neighbours, and man and wife that agree well together.
There are three kinds of people I cannot stand, whose behavior I find highly offensive: poor people who are arrogant, rich people who lie, and foolish old men who commit adultery.
Three kinds of people I hate, and I loathe their manner of life: A proud pauper, a rich liar, and a lecherous old fool.
