Freedom is not procured by a full enjoyment of what is desired, but by controlling the desire.
The more material we lose, the less we have. The less we have, the more we win.
Among other possibilities, money was invented to make it possible for a foolish man to control wise men; a weak man, strong men; a child, old men; an ignorant man, knowledgeable men; and for a dwarf to control giants.
I'm not jealous, and I'm not possessive, and I'm not controlling.
