    “And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books (there is) no end, and much study a weariness of the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this (is) the whole of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good, or whether evil.”

    -Ecclesiastes 12:12-14 KJV

    Not cleaning up afterwards

    They talked God and unity of all men,
    and left without cleaning up the place
    and taking out the trash.

    Hunt to extinction

    Give a man a fish and he eats one day;
    teach him to fish and he wants to hunt
    whales to extinction.

    "This so called new religion is nothing but a pack of weird rituals and chants designed to take away the money of fools. Let us say the Lord's prayer 40 times, but first let's pass the collection plate."

    [size=+0]A Hindu story tells of a fish who asked of another fish: "I have always heard about the sea, but what is it? Where is it?" The other fish replied: "You live, move and have your being in the sea. The sea is within you and without you, and you are made of sea,and you will end in sea. The sea surrounds you as your own being." [/size]
