Galloping

Bicycle

I would like to be rich, to ride in coaches and squander money.  I have discussed this with Kraus, my school friend, but he only shrugged his shoulders in scorn and did not honor me with a single word of reply.  Kraus has principles, he sits firmly in the saddle, he rides satisfaction, and that is a horse that people should not mount if they want to do some galloping.
