Want of prudence, as well as piety
Hath brought men into great controversy;
But he that is well stored in both
Seldom is so ensnared
Anne Bradstreet, Meditations
How often we have hurt by getting what we want. How winning the lottery makes one unhappy. How often being stuffed with creation, one vomits it up:
Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
