【正文学习】

The best excuse that can be made for avarice is , that is generally prevails in old men , or in men of cold tempers , where all the other affections are extinct ; and the mind being incapable of remaining without some passion or pursuit , at last finds out this monstrously absurd one ,which suits the coldness and inactivity of its temper . at the same time , it seems very extraordinary , that so frosty ,spirtless a passion should be able to carry us further than all the warmth of youth and pleasure but if we look more narrowly into the matter ,we shall find , that this very circumstance renders the explication of the case more easy .when the temper is warm and full of vigour , it naturally shoots out more esay when the temper is warm and full of vigour , it naturally shoots out ore ways than one and produces inferior passion to counterbalance , in some degree , its predominant inclination  it is impossble for a person of that temper. However , bent to any pursuit , to be deprived of all sense of shame , or all regard to sentiments of mankind . His friends must have some influence over him ; and other considerations ate apt to have some influence over the avaricious man ,being ,from the coldness of his temper , without regard to reputation , to friendship , or to pleasure ,should be carried so far by his prevailing inclination , and should display his passion in such surprising instances.
