Neither necessity nor desire, but the love of power, is the demon of mankind.
You may give men everything possible—health, food, shelter, enjoyment—but
they are and remain unhappy and capricious, for the demon waits and waits;
and must be satisfied. Let everything else be taken away from men, and let
this demon be satisfied, and then they will nearly be happy—as happy as men
and demons can be. (Friedrich Nietzsche, The Dawn of Day, cited by Hillman, 1995)
