It takes a remarkably short time to withdraw from the world. I traveled until I arrived at a life of my own. What really makes us, is beyond grasping, is way beyond knowing. We get into love because it gives us a sense of what is unknowable. Nothing else matters. Not again.
- Jeremy Irons as Stephen Fleming in Damage (1992)
There is no greater sin than desire, No greater curse than discontent, No greater misfortune than wanting something for oneself. Therefore he who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
- Lao Tzu
