"Of crimes none is greater than having many desires.
Of disasters none is greater than not knowing when one has enough.
Of defects none brings more sorrow than the desire to attain.
Therefore, the contentment you have when you know that you have enough, is abiding contentment indeed."
Lao-Tzu (c. 550 B.C.)
"Let us take things as we find them: let us not attempt to distort them into what they are not. We cannot make facts. All our wishing cannot change them. We must use them."
Cardinal Newman (18011890)
