homeless signs that make you go hmm

A dude on the corner has this written on his today:

WHAT YOU GIVE TO THE POOR
IS WHAT YOU TAKE WITH YOU
WHEN YOU DIE
- UNKNOWN

I've always thought that you take nothing with you when you die, so I guess that's consistent.

Maybe he was paraphrasing Proverbs ("The Lord will pay back what you give to the poor") or a similar sentiment, but I'd argue there's a cogency in the original that is missing from his besharpied version, and I currently have a requirement (one of many) that requests for my money from strangers at least be logically tractable. Maybe it was an incorrect assumption, but he looked like he wouldn't be interested in discussing the nuances of his wording.
