Author Quotes

Only a person who is able to overcome his desires for what he does not have is a truly free person. He is the only type of person who will live a completely happy life since whatever he does not have does not bother him.

Regardless of how much honor he receives, an honor-seeker will feel upset if even one person does not show him the honor and approval he demands. There will never be an amount of honor that will satisfy him. Physical desires have a saturation point, but the desire for honor is based on falsehood and illusion and is really nothing in itself.
