[14] One who gives to the wrong people,1 or not for the nobility of giving but from some other motive, will not be called liberal, but by some different title; nor will he who gives with pain, for he would prefer the money to the noble deed, which is not the mark of a liberal man.

1 The ms. text gives ‘to the wrong people,’ but cf. 1.12, l.25 ὀρθῶς.
