Cultural proverbs have been a source of collective wisdom for hundreds of years, transmitting deeply held beliefs across generations, continents, and social classes. They don’t comment exclusively on money issue, but matters of wealth, poverty, work, and business have made themselves into these important cultural artifacts.
Nihil tam munitum quod non expugnari pecunia possit. (Nothing is so fortified that it can’t be conquered with money.)
Semper inops quicumque cupit. (Whoever desires is always poor)
