Fool, Philosopher, Sage

From Maverick Philosopher:

The fool is never satisfied with what he has, but is quite satisfied with what he is. The philosopher is never satisfied with what he is, but is satisfied with what he has. The sage is satisfied with both, with what he is and what he has. Unfortunately, there are no sages, few philosophers, and a world full of fools.

LOL. Wow, what a quote! :)

No sages at all? Not even one? Not even one who is a sage for a minute at a time before falling back into foolity or philosophising?

Sigh. That's a harsh reality :)

Maybe in the next age we will have a better shot at it :)
