The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

When the Tao is present

 There is no greater sin than desire,

No greater curse than discontent,
No greater misfortune than
wanting something for oneself.
Therefore he who knows that
enough is enough will always
have enough.
When the Tao is present
The horses haul manure.
When the Tao is absent
War horses are bred outside the city.
~Lao Tsu
Tao te Ching
