A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on mind, passions, indulgence, happiness, and poverty

We notice that the mind is a restless bird; the more it gets the more it wants, and still remains unsatisfied. The more we indulge our passions the more unbridled they become. Our ancestors, therefore, set a limit to our indulgences. They saw that happiness was largely a mental condition. A man is not necessarily happy because he is rich, or unhappy because he is poor.... Millions will always remain poor.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
