“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Honesty Is the Best Wealth

Tell it Trungpa Rinpoche:

Ideally, all businesses should be without blame. The idea of juggling things around rather than being straightforward is like taking pride in getting into a theater without paying. You avoid the ticket taker by using the back door. That might be profitable for a few weeks, but as time goes on, you find that you have problems. Honesty is the best wealth.

(yuck I misspelled the post title!)
