Even in the case of statuary, it was a rule of the greatest importance to see that the figures were  properly balanced and placed on the right center of gravity. Any departure from this rule would  produce something that was ugly, for it would convey the ideas of falling, breakage, and pain. With regard to fortune or the accumulation of private possessions, it has usually been recognized  that the amount of material goods which one can call his own is one way of determining the respect  and esteem in which he is held by his fellow humans. To be sure, this is not the only factor that is  important in estimating the moral worth of an individual, but under normal conditions it does indicate  something about one's habits of industry, attention to matters of thrift, and the soundness of  judgment in affairs relating to business transactions.
