Saint Alfred the Great on Prosperity

St. Alfred the Great, King of England

St. Alfred the Great, King of England

In the midst of prosperity the mind is elated, and in prosperity a man forgets himself; in hardship he is forced to reflect on himself, even though he be unwilling. In prosperity a man often destroys the good he has done; amidst difficulties he often repairs what he long since did in the way of wickedness.
