                                this is not my poem
                although I found it nevertheless

                                              the hankering after phenomena
                like the thirst for drink and opium …
                                it grows with gratification

                                              … if you cannot be happy without phenomena
                                              you will never learn our philosophy …
                                but choose wisdom [and]
                all other things will be added to it …

                                              … let us talk like sensible men
                why should we play with Jack-in-the-box
                                are not our beards grown?

(from a letter from Master Morya to AP Sinnett, 2nd October 1881)
