The more a man denies himself, the more he shall receive from
heaven. Naked, I seek the camp of those who covet nothing.

A little man all in gray;
Rosy and read more

In Paris a queer little man you may see,
A little man all in gray;
Rosy and round as an apple is he,
Content with the present whate'er it may be,
While from care and from cash he is equally free,
And merry both night and day!
"Ma foi! I laugh at the world," says he,
"I laugh at the world, and the world laughs at me!"
What a gay little man in gray.

one is contented, there is no more to be desired; and when there
is no more to be desired, there is an end of it.

Who covets more is evermore a slave.
