Poverty Is Not Romantic!

Shabbos 151b:

תניא, רבי אלעזר הקפר אומר, לעולם יבקש אדם רחמים על מדה זו…

It was taught, R. Eleazar ha-Kappar said: Let one always pray to be spared this fate [poverty]…

Translation: Soncino.

Note how the word itself is avoided…

Thank you, Captain Obvious!
Don’t be mean. See this.
