Quantity can often impose great burdens. Quality, on the other hand, almost always brings sublime joy.
When caught between quantity and quality, seek quality. Quality is what makes anything worth having, knowing, learning, experiencing in the first place.
You cannot have a hundred million close friends, and would not want to. Yet you can experience a life overflowing with enjoyment from just a handful of quality friendships.
You cannot eat every item on every menu. You can select one quality meal at a time, and find great satisfaction in it.
Quantity spreads your attention, your purpose, your caring too thin. If a small quantity of something does not satisfy you, then more of the same will satisfy you even less.
Let go of the need to have the most, the latest, the fastest, the biggest. Seek deep, meaningful quality and make yourself rich in life, not just in stuff.
