Greed


A shrewd man has to arrange his interests in order of importance and deal with them one by one; but often our greed upsets this order and makes us run after so many things at once that through over-anxiety to obtain the trivial, we miss the most important. - Duc de La Rochefoucauld

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed. - Gandhi

The greed of gain has no time or limit to its capaciousness. Its one object is to produce and consume. It has pity neither for beautiful nature nor for living human beings. It is ruthlessly ready without a moment's hesitation to crush beauty and life. - Rabindranath Tagore
