A Quote by Lao Tzu on achievement, greed, immortality, obstacles, reward, virtue, and wealth

Greed for enlightenment and immortality is no different than greed for material wealth. It is self-centered and dualistic, and thus an obstacle to true attainment. Therefore these states are never achieved by those who covet them; rather, they are the reward of the virtuous.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
