My wife is reading Silence, a romance from the 13th century, and this passage seems prescient:

Assets are worth much less than manure:
at least dung enriches the soil,
but the wealth that is locked away
is a disgrace to the man who hoards it.

We should remember that, in the light of a changing Earth, as humanity needs to get away from capitalism and back to the root of what sustains it.
