„When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.“

—  John Muir Scottish-born American naturalist and author 1838 - 1914
Variant: Tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe. These are paraphrases of Muir's quote from My First Summer in the Sierra (1911) - the actual quote is listed above: "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe." See Sierra Club explanation http://www.sierraclub.org/john_muir_exhibit/writings/misquotes.aspx.

„The only thing necessary is to understand attachment“

—  Baba Hari Dass master yogi, author, builder, commentator of Indian spiritual tradition 1923
Context: You have everything and you want more. It's natural in human beings. You don't need to give away your house, money, and car, and leave your family to find God. The only thing necessary is to understand attachment. (p.17)
