    It's a quote from Benjamin Franklin, urging frugality.

    It means "He who loves to squander money on frippery such as "dainties" (little fancy things of food or dress), shall end up (prove to be) a beggar in the long run."

    Those who love dainties will prove to be beggars eventually.

    (Those) who dainties love, shall beggars prove (to become.)
