Before desiring anything that belongs to someone else

"Before strongly desiring anything,
we should look carefully into
the happiness of its present owner."

Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)

I found his words on a Quote-A-Day calendar years ago and saved them.
Today it hits me more strongly than ever. For me, this applies to desiring:

A house
A car
A dog
A job
A man

Especially a man.
