What Do You Really Need?

Loaf of bread baked in ad hoc oven (half eaten)

From all your herds, a cup or two of milk,
From all your granaries, a loaf of bread,
In all your palace, only half a bed:
Can man use more? And do you own the rest?

from an ancient Sanskrit poem,
quoted by Rolf Potts in his book
Vagabonding.
