Moderation

“All the wealth you’ve acquired
from beginningless time until now
has failed to fulfill all your desires.
Cultivate therefore this wish-granting gem
of moderation, O fortunate ones.”
-Milarepa, “Drinking the Mountain Stream

Who is it that said “Everything in moderation. Including Moderation”? And who said “It is easier to like what you have than have what you like”?
I dunno, but I like the image of Moderation as a “wish granting gem.”
