“The mind wants to live forever, or to learn a very good reason why not. The mind wants the world to return its love, or its awareness … The minds sidekick, however, will settle for two eggs over easy. The dear, stupid body is easily satisfied as a spaniel. And, incredibly, the simple spaniel can lure the brawling mind to its dish. It is everlastingly funny that the proud, metaphysically ambitious mind will hush if you give it an egg.” — Annie Dillard
