Once upon a barren moor
There dwelt a bear, also a boar,
The bear could not bear the boar,
The bear thought the boar was a bore.
At last the bear could bear no more
That boar that bored him on the moor.
And so one morn he bored the boar-
That boar will bore no more!

I’m not a fig plucker nor a fig plucker’s son,

Man’s many desires are like small metal coins he carries about in his pocket. The more he has the more they weigh him down. – Satya Sai Baba
