Image result for An elephant when free puts its trunk here and there and looks restlessAn elephant when free puts its trunk here and there and looks restless. If a stick is given to it the trunk holds it without being turned this way and that, as before. In just the same way, the mind is restless if it has no aim; if an aim is fixed, the mind is restful.

– Ramana Maharishi
