“As long as you derive inner help and comfort from anything,
you should keep it.
If you were to give it up in a mood of self-sacrifice
or out of a stern sense of duty,
you would continue to want it back,
and that unsatisfied want would make trouble for you.
Only give up a thing when you want some other condition so much
that the thing no longer has any attraction for you,
or when it seems to interfere with that which is more greatly desired.”

–Mahatma Gandhi in a conversation with Richard B. Gregg
(The Value of Voluntary Simplicity, originally published in August 1936)
