The broken link

To find a wise man, look not in caves and ascetic cells. The wisest men abide in warm houses with the finest views.

To find a rich man, look not beneath ostentation. The richest men are those who have not spent their money.

To find a kind man, do not frequent the poorhouse or beneficent trust. The kindest men are where poverty is not; you will know them by the presence of productivity, happiness and full (but never straining) stomachs.

To find a free man, look not for the absence of chains; it is the broken link you must locate.
