ideals of happiness people cherish,
and in what singular places they look
for this well-spring of their life.

a few seek it in the exploration of their own minds,
or in search for knowledge.

to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

He who wishes to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.

would lose something of rewarding joy
if there were no limitations to overcome.
The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful
if there were no dark valleys to traverse.
