And if you were to supply to each his life's need, giving money to the poor man, harmony to the man without harmony, position to the man who has not got it, a beautiful palace to the one who longs for that, health to him who has it not, then see how long he would remain happy! It would be only for that moment when his desire was fulfilled, and then he would again feel the hunger for he knows not what. He asks his mind, "What more do I want?" and his mind says, "You feel so unhappy." And as soon as he asks, "For what?" his mind answers that he cannot have that which he seeks.
