TOPIC: LUXURY

Luxury makes a man so soft, that it is hard to please
him, and easy to trouble him; so that his pleasures at
last become his burden.
-- Henry Mackenzie
Comment: Luxury spoils us rotten to the core. Hardship may take us down on our knees but on our knees we can plea to God for help and find His love cascading down from the Cross.

Where necessity ends, curiosity begins; and no sooner
are we supplied with everything that nature can demand,
than we sit down to contrive artificial appetites.
-- Samuel Johnson
Comment: The starving of the soul is satisfied only by the manna of God.

On the soft bed of luxury most kingdoms have expired.
-- Edward Young
Comment: The softer a person or nation become the easier it is for the evil one to come in and destroy…either destroy from within or without…there is still destruction.

Now we suffer the evils of a long peace; luxury more cruel
than war broods over us and avenges a conquered world.
-- Juvenal
Comment: Those who do not count the blessings of peace make their own destruction.
