Your humble correspondent, Master of the Camel Call, taming the beast, Giza, 1983

Unhappiness can result due to miscalculation (or an absence of calculation) of the effect of an act of Will. One must keep in mind that limited measurements of infinite processes yield meaningless numbers.

"Surely (as for) those who reject Our communications and turn away from them haughtily, the doors of heaven shall not be opened for them, nor shall they enter the garden until the camel pass through the eye of the needle; and thus do We reward the guilty." The Qur'an, The Elevated Places [7:40]

"It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."- Jesus (Luke 18:25)

"Christians and camels receive their burdens kneeling."- Ambrose Bierce
