gather by labor

Proverbs 13

v11

Wealth [gotten] by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

Money that we make from hard work will be valuable. Money that we get the wrong way, even if it's a huge amount, will seem to grow wings and fly away.

From: Work, for the Night Is Coming

By Anna Coghill, 1854 and Lowell Mason, 1864
Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the morning hours;
Work while the dew is sparkling,
Work ’mid springing flowers;
Work when the day grows brighter,
Work in the glowing sun;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man’s work is done.

Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labor,
Rest comes sure and soon.
Give every flying minute,
Something to keep in store;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man works no more.
