Clement of Alexandria, c. A.D. 190

But the hiccuping of those who are loaded with wine, the snortings of those who are stuffed with food, the snoring rolled in the bed clothes, the rumblings of pained stomachs, cover over the clear-seeing eye of the soul by filling the mind with ten thousand fantasies. the cause is too much food, which drags the rational part of man down to a condition of stupidity. (The Instructor II:9)

Love of dainties and love of wine, though great vices, are not of such magnitude as fondness for finery. A full table and repeated cups are enough to satisfy greed. But to those who are fond of gold, purple, and jewels, neither the gold that is above the earth and below it is sufficient, nor the Tyrian Sea, nor the freight that comes from India and Ethiopia, nor yet Pactolus flowing with gold. Not even were a man to become a Midas would he be satisfied, but would be still poor, craving other wealth. Such people are ready to die with their gold. (The Instructor III:2)

My newest book, Rome's Audacious Claim, was released December 1. See synopsis and reviews on Amazon.
