Greed for Prophecy

The avidity for fortune-telling came from an inability to cope with one's anxieties. Instead of satisfying, it created a self-perpetuating greed for prophecy... It blinded one to the causes of one's problems... a vain and self-defeating search for expedient solutions to problems of moral integrity, caused by an unwillingness to face life as it was.

--The Gypsies by Jan Yoors
