Leo Tolstoy quote

From A Calendar of Wisdom:
Remember how passionately you yearned in the past for many of the things which you hate or despise now. 
Remember how many things you lost trying to satisfy your former desires. The same thing could happen now, with the desires which excite you at present. Try to tame your present desires, calm them; this is most beneficial, and most achievable.
