Less with Tranquility

A person is much better off in life if he chooses a small degree of wealth with peace than a large amount with quarrels.  We find in the Torah (Bereishis 13:12) that Avraham chose to live peacefully by taking land that had less grazing area for his cattle, rather than taking more with a quarrel.  This is what the verse states in Mishle (17:1): “Better a morsel of dry bread and tranquility with it, than a house full of feasting with strife.  ~ Ralbag
