    A couple of ideas ....
    Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki Zen philosophical writer 1869-1966
    He wrote in 1949 at age 80:

    "Man makes many tools and uses them effectively in various fields of his activity,
    but he is always exposing himself to the tyranny of the tools he has made.
    The result is that he is no more master of himself, but an abject slave to his surroundings,
    and the worst thing is that he is not conscious of this fact.
    This is specially noticeable in the realm of thought."


    Thomas Gray (1716-71): from "Elegy written in a country churchyard"

    Full many a gem of purest ray serene
    the dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear;
    Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
    and waste its sweetness on the desert air.
