Ezekiel 28:5

Riches in a cultured community are the strongest of things; a power all-moving, yet which only the most powerless and skilless can put in motion; they are the readiest of possibilities; the readiest to become a great blessing or a great curse. 'Beneath gold thrones and mountains,' says Jean Paul, 'who knows how many giant spirits lie entombed?'

Carlyle, Essay on Goethe's Works.
