"When we have a business deal with somebody, we should not think in terms of cutting his throat, but we should have good faith in that particular person and a sense of tenderness toward him. ...On the whole, we should regard money as mother's milk: it nourishes us and it nourishes others. ...So we should respect it, like mother's milk. But at the same time, mother's milk can be given away to others, and we can produce more mother's milk. So we shouldn't hang onto it too tightly."
o mestre tibetano Chogyam Trungpa, 1981
