Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Read Proverbs 13:11 Using Other Translations
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.
