Many foolish men always think about money, but they err; we are able to be strong without much money, but without friendship we have no strength and life is nothing.
you neglected to translate "pauci de amicis"Also- when you're translating passages with Latin names into English, do you always just write it in the Nominative form of the name?
Pauci viri verro amicos habent
Many Latin names have separate English versions, e.g. Catiline (Catilina), Vergil (Publius Vergilius Maro), Mark Antony (Marcus Antonius); in these cases it is customary to use the English version of the name.

Surely "verro" is a typo for "veros"?
