William Shakespeare
“What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute's mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?
Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,
Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?”
William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece

William Shakespeare
“Those that much covet are with gain so fond,
For what they have not, that which they possess
They scatter and unloose it from their bond,

Is but to surfeit, and such griefs sustain,
That they prove bankrupt in this poor-rich gain.”

Save Me, save only Me?
All which I took from thee I did but take,

Fancies as lost, I have stored for thee at home;
Rise, clasp My hand, and come!”

Zhuangzi
“The straight tree is the first to be chopped down; the well of sweet water is the first to run dry. Sir, your intention is to display your knowledge in order to astonish the ignorant, and by developing your self, to cast a light upon the crudeness of others. You shine, you positively glow, as if you carried with you the sun and moon. All this is why you cannot avoid disasters.

I have heard the great fulfillment man say, “The boastful have done nothing worthwhile, those who do something worthwhile will see it fade, fame soon disappears.” There are few who can forget success and fame and just return to being ordinary citizens again! The Tao moves all, but the perfect man does not stand in its light, his Virtue moves all, but he does not seek fame. He is empty and plain, and seems crazy. Anonymous, abdicating power, he has no interest in work or fame. So he doesn’t criticize others and they don’t criticize him. The perfect man is never heard, so why, Sir, do you so want to be?”
Zhuangzi, The Book of Chuang Tzu
