Beggars should be entirely abolished! Truly, it is annoying to give to them and annoying not to give to them.
Give a beggar a dime and he'll bless you. Give him a dollar and he'll curse you for withholding the rest of your fortune. Poverty is a bag with a hole at the bottom.
As for begging, it is safer to beg than to take, but it is finer to take than to beg.
