The Value of a Man
Found in the book
The Persian Mystics: Jami
(Available as FREE Ebook on the page linked above)
The price of a man consists not in silver and gold;
The value of a man is his power and virtue.
Many a slave has by acquiring virtue
Attained much greater power than a gentleman
And many a gentleman has for want of virtue,
Become inferior to his own slave.
