If we allow desire to control us

If we allow desire to control us, we end up acting out of ignorance, selfishness, and egotism, never content with what we have or who we are. But we can control desire by understanding it, knowing its essence. Therein lies the route to wisdom and happiness. As the classic text of Eastern philosophy, the Tao Te Ching, says, 'Only those who know when enough is enough will ever have enough.'

~ Philip T. Sudo
