Sirach 33:19-23

19 Hear me, you who are great among the people,
   and you leaders of the congregation, pay heed!

The Advantage of Independence

20 To son or wife, to brother or friend,
   do not give power over yourself, as long as you live;
and do not give your property to another,
   in case you change your mind and must ask for it.
21 While you are still alive and have breath in you,
   do not let anyone take your place.
22 For it is better that your children should ask from you
   than that you should look to the hand of your children.
23 Excel in all that you do;
   bring no stain upon your honour.
