‘Umar bin al-Khattab on poverty

‘Umar bin al-Khattab, radi’Allahu anhu, said: “I don’t care whether I become rich or poor, for I don’t know which is better for me.” (Source: N.H.M. Keller, Al-Nawawi’s Manual of Islam, pag. 97) This statement is about the acceptance of Fate and Allah is the best of planners!
