Our greediness so often troubles us, making us run after so many things at the same time, that while we too eagerly look after the least, we miss the greatest | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

“Let’s just call things what they are. When a man’s love of finery clouds his moral judgement, that is vanity. When he lets a demanding palate make his moral choices, that is gluttony. When he ascribes the divine will to his own whims, that is pride. And when he gets angry at being reminded of animal suffering that his own daily choices might help avoid, that is moral cowardice.”― Matthew Scully.
