Comment and comparatively of what is the difference between these lines:

In Act 1 Scene 1

VOLP: True, my beloved Mosca. Yet I glory More in the cunning purchase of my wealth, Than in the glad possession; since I gain No common way; I use no trade, no venture; I wound no earth with plough-shares; fat no beasts, To feed the shambles; have no mills for iron, Oil, corn, or men, to grind them into powder: I blow no subtle glass; expose no ships To threat'nings of the furrow-faced sea; I turn no monies in the public bank, Nor usure private.

In Act 5 Scene II

Volp.                 And sloutly: Good wits are greatest in extremities.

 

And how could I answer to questions like this in future. There is any tips could you give it to me.
