Voltaire
“Men will always be mad, and those who think they can cure them are the maddest of all.”
Voltaire

Gautama Buddha
“A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him. Only the vine sustained him.

Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine. The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted! ”
Gautama Buddha, The Dhammapada: Verses on the Way

Wendell Berry
“Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”
Wendell Berry, Farming: a hand book
