Five of the best book quotes about inheritance

    “Not today, O Lord,
    O, not today, think not upon the fault
    My father made in compassing the crown.

    And on it have bestowed more contrite tears
    Than from it issued forcèd drops of blood.
    Five hundred poor I have in yearly pay
    Who twice a day their withered hands hold up
    Toward heaven, to pardon blood.”

Then you’ll see.”
