The Nature of Change and Door Knobs

A very poor, underprivileged person might think that is would be wonderful to have an automobile or a television set, and should he acquire them, at the beginning he would feel very happy. Now if such happiness were something permanent , it would remian forever. But it does not; it goes. After a few months he wants to change the models. The old ones, the same objects now cause dissatisfaction. This is the nature of change. ~The Dalai Lama

I guess the purpose of my posting this is just that it made me think, that it is much less important which door knobs I pick out for the new house, than who comes to turn them.
