"We are not born, my dear daughter, to pursue our own small
personal happiness, for we are not separate, independent,

us the path that they themselves have scrupulously trod. . . ."

"If work drives you to money so you can get and have acquisitions,
than you are living in a false reality.

more possessions, you may need to reexamine your balanced
life criteria before it's too late."
