One is not satisfied only with possessing earthly properties, but one also wishes to possess those whom one pretends to love. In this way one proves to be tyrannical and foolish. All the things of this world that one possesses are not in reality possessed; one is possessed by them, whether wealth or property or a friend or position or rank.
