On The Middle Way

On realizing that the ultimate truth and freedom from the wold's ills is not found in the extremes of earthly pleasures of his former princely life, nor in the severe bodily mortifications of an ascetic, he overheard a master of the lute passing on the river remark:

If the string is too tight, it will break. If it is too loose, it will not play.

- Gautama Siddartha
The Buddha
