I suppose that all of us have spent much of our lives searching. We look for what we think we need, needlessly, and try to find things that we do not know, do not know of and even do not understand whether such exist or not.
To live untouched by those that corrupt is a devout desire of the pious, and a fond hope of those with less piety. We confuse our quest with life; life is not a quest, not a search nor is it a journey. It is merely a state of existence which depends upon others and a search for all the money in the world is merely a search for what cannot be spent and where the search is corrupting in itself.
