Role of money

“It’s a hard country on man; it’s hard. Eight miles of the sweat of his body washed up outen the Lord’s earth, where the Lord Himself told him to put it. Nowhere in this sinful world can a honest, hardworking man profit.”

“It’s because there is a reward for us above, where they can’t take their autos and such. Every man will be equal and it will be taken from them that have and give to them that have not by the Lord.” (Faulkner 111)
