That Green Spider

No blister draws sharper than interest on money.
It works day and night; in fair weather and foul.
It gnaws at a man's substance with invisible teeth.
It binds industry with its film, as a fly is bound with a spider's web.

Debt rolls a man over and over, binding him hand and foot,
and letting him hang on the fatal mesh, till the long-legged interest devours him.
One had better make his bed of Canada thistles, than attempt to lie at ease upon interest.
