The truffle hunter with his dog or pig
works to unearth a thousand dollar shroom.
He's unconcerned about where he may dig,
just eager to uproot them from their room.
One who exalts in wisdom does not care
just how or where, a jewel finds way to mind.
That truth that bolsters virtue's tack is rare
and precious as a path for all mankind.
To live one's life with goals implies a stake
of hope and sense of quest. There are no maps
except for potent adages that make
the roads untwist and clarify the traps.
What's wise and true, will guide minds and endure
as perfect cure for keeping pursuits pure.
