I’m hoping someone will know this.

I vaguely recall a quote by someone, possibly famous, about the relationship of the number of keys on your keyring to the amount of attachment to the world. I can’t remember the quote, or the person who made it, but I recall that the point was to have fewer keys, and not the giant wad of them that I have. Oh, it was related to Buddhism in some way. Either the speaker was Buddhist or was paraphrasing one, I think.
So, tell me, esteemed readers, does anyone else remember the quote?
