Found Under Discontentment

Lemonade Stand in the Desert

      A man in the desert was craving something to drink and saw a lemonade stand on the next sand dune.  He ran to it, but when he arrived, the lemonade stand disappeared and reappeared on the next sand dune.  When he ran to the next sand dune and grabbed for the lemonade, it disappeared and reappeared again on the next dune.  He continued to chase it from dune to dune until he died of thirst.  He was only chasing a mirage. Discontentment is a mirage that leads us on an endless chase and never satisfies our thirst. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook, Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2003, 24)
