The meek shall inherit the Earth

Or, as Robert A. Heinlein once said, "Perhaps the meek shall inherit the Earth, but they'll do it in very small plots . . . about 6' by 3'."

Actually, "the meek shall inherit the Earth" and "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" seem to be phrases that wealthy and powerful people use to keep everyone else passive.

"Yeah, you'll get yours,... but only after you're dead. Trust me!" Heh, heh. Man, why would you believe that?

But then, check out this video clip if you wonder why people believe this stuff. No, you still won't learn why, since the caller never answers that question. But you certainly get an idea of his mindset. (Note that he's not unsympathetic, because I feel kind of sorry for him, but he's certainly not a good role model, either.)
