Do not ask for what you do not want, Grasshopper. Look for the answer within yourself and find there whether or not there is a better way. But to find it you must first discover a worse way, and in finding the worse way you will find the better one. Search within before you ask of others, for only then will you understand the answer when you find it.

A man wished to travel a Great Distance in a short time, and so he asked others to arrange his travel for him and for this he would pay the arrangers gold. And his travel was arranged and it did not cost him much, but as he was flying over the Great Ocean he realized that his seat was so close to the one in front of his he had not placed his feet upon the floor of the carriage since he had left. And he was greatly discomfited. After his business in the far land was completed, he arranged for his own travel and made a compromise between the elegance and useless frippery of First Class and the discomfort of Coach and traveled Business Class. And his compromise made him comfortable, and cost him more gold than Coach but less than First Class.

Learn from this lesson, Grasshopper.
