I don’t find you offering me the thing I look for; you bring things, which are un-worthy and impure. Reduce your wants; minimize your desires. All these material knick-knacks are short lived. If you go on heaping desire upon desire, it will be impossible to depart gladly when the call comes. Become rich, rather in virtue, in the spirit of service, in devotion to the higher power.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
