“There are more fools than knaves in the world, else the knaves would not have enough to live upon.” — Samuel Butler (1612-1680)
Bonus quote from Samuel Wesley with Butler’s epitaph:
“While Butler, needy wretch, was yet alive,
No generous patron would a dinner give;
See him, when starv’d to death, and turn’d to dust,
Presented with a monumental bust.
The poet’s fate is here in emblem shown,
He ask’d for bread, and he received a stone.”
How many fools does one knave need to live on, anyway?Published in
