    You should not first, give thanks for a pot of gold, but instead, because you’re healthy and others are not. Then give thanks for the food you eat because others are hungry.

And once you have given thanks for these necessities, seek out those without them and your soul will be at peace, and the pot of gold remains within your reach.
