Oh God, I beg two favors from you;
Let me have them before I die.
First, help me never to tell a lie.
Second, give me neither poverty nor riches.
Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.
For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.
I’ve seen extreme poverty and I’ve seen the opulence of the uber rich… what I’ve noticed that is similar between them is that they both consume and destroy that which was once pure and innocent… Blessed are those who are able to exit this existence with their morals intact.[source]
