Ezra Pound Quote

With usura hath no man a house of good stone
each block cut smooth and well fitting
[...]
with usura
hath no man a painted paradise on his church wall
[...]
no picture is made to endure nor to live with
but it is made to sell and sell quickly


Canto XLV Note: Regarding usura, in 1972 Pound wrote in the foreword to "Selected Prose, 1909-1965": - The Cantos
