Desire is not gratified by indulgence. On the other hand it increases like fire after a pouring of ghee over it. All the wealth in the world will not be sufficient to gratify the desire of one person. Knowing this, a wise man should control his mind.

– from The Life of Ramakrishna by Romain Rolland
