„If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.“

—  Dorothy Parker

Man and the Gospel (1865) by Thomas Guthrie "and you may know how little God thinks of money by observing on what bad and contemptible characters he often bestows it."
“We may see the small Value God has for Riches, by the People he gives them to.” -- Alexander Pope (1727).

Varianta: If you want to know what the Lord God thinks of money, just look at those to whom he gives it.

„I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
After four I’m under my host.“

—  Dorothy Parker

Variant of:
I wish I could drink like a lady.
“Two or three,” at the most.
But two, and I’m under the table—
And three, I'm under the host.
The Harlequin, Volume 2, 1959, University of Virginia (page ? http://books.google.com/books?id=zdFKAAAAYAAJ&q=%22under+the+table%22+%22under+the+host%22)
Perhaps attributed due to “One more drink and I'd have been under the host.” (see above).
