Money-Making: No Time for
A gentlemen of Boston (U. S.), an intimate friend of Professor Agassiz, once expressed his wonder that a man of such abilities as he (Agassiz) possessed should remain contented with such a moderate income. 'I have enough,' was Agassiz's reply. 'I have not time to make money. Life is not sufficiently long to enable a man to get rich, and do his duty to his fellow men at the same time.' Christian, have you time to serve your God and yet to give your whole soul to gaining wealth? The question is left for conscience to answer.
