Wealth gained hastily

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.” – Prov. 13:11

Literally, wealth by a breath; i.e.wealth obtained without work or by illegitimate and dishonest means, is not blessed by God.

There is a Greek maxim, Cito nata, cito pereunt: “Quickly won, quickly gone.”

The opposite is equally true.
