Tao Te Ching 46b + 47a

There is no crime greater than greed
No disaster greater than discontentment
No fault greater than avarice
Thus the satisfaction of contentment
is the lasting satisfaction
     ...................................

Without going out the door, know the world
Without peering out the window, see the Heavenly Tao
The further one goes
The less one knows

         Translated by Derek Lin
Accurate Translation of the Tao Te Ching  

That's right.
Wherever i go
there i am
with my greed,
and my discontent
I might as well stay home
and tame my beasts.
and learn the world
with my inner eye.
