the tortoise asked the guru, “you say that we can pay whatever we want for 17, but what should we pay?

the guru replied, “whatever makes you feel #zen. some feel #zen when they contribute to the cause. others feel #zen when they get something for free. if you pay less than you can afford, however, you will risk your mind in the woods, for you are saying, ‘i do not value #zen as much as i value a sandwich,’ and #zen is worth more than 77 sandwiches.”

“not lettuce sandwiches,” the tortoise replied.
