No matter how much you train the wolf, he still looks at the mountains and howls.

Қасқырды қанша асырасаң да тауға қарап ұлиды.
(Qasqırdı qansha asırasaŋ da taūġa qarap uliydı.)

“He Sat in the window thinking. Man has a tropism for order. Keys in one pocket, change in the other. Mandolins are tuned G D A E. The physical world has a tropism for disorder, entropy. Man against Nature…the battle of the centuries. Keys yearn to mix with change. Mandolins strive to get out of tune. Every order has within it the germ of destruction. All order is doomed, yet the battle is worth while.”

― Nathanael West, Miss Lonelyhearts & The day of the locust
