Goya " Los Caprichos "
Spanish: Al Conde Palatino
English: To the Count Palatine
In all sciences there are people who know everything without
Having learned and have a ready remedy for all ills.

Goya Los Caprichos
Spanish: Ruega por ella
English: She Prays for Her
And she did well to do so ... that God may give her luck, keep her from harm, moneylenders, and cops ...
Make her skilful and carefull, wide-awake, and ready as her sainted mother.
Spanish: Porque Esconderlos?
English: Why Hide the Money?

he is afraid that he might have no more left if he lives longer.
Such are the mistakes of Greed.
