Not all that tempts your wandering eyes
And heedless hearts, is lawful prize;
Nor all, that glisters, gold.

I LOVE GOLD

Perhaps you should also mention that these lines are from an 18 century poem by Thomas Gray, who is best known I think for Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard. Or maybe this is credited in the cartoon.

Just reading this poetry is a very good antidote to rushing!

The cartoon doesn't reference Gray. That was my doing.

In college I did my senior thesis on Gray, and I've loitered at his grave (in the "country churchyard" at Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire) and at the monument to him in Westiminster Abbey.

Sometimes I think if there was one thing I could do to improve the world, it would be to get everyone to read, and understand, Gray's Elegy.
