wanting wants ...

it seems that when you have little you want little things. when you have a lot, you want bigger things. when you have little, you manage with what you have. when you have a lot, it still seems lacking. what's wrong?

I guess it is the nature of things. Our wants are directly proportional to what we have. That way, if we cannot get what we want, it sets us back but does not completely bring us down. Must be the need to survive, despite the need to dream as well, in us.

Can you imagine how disastrous it would be if we had little and wanted more than what we have? We would be perpetual disappointed creatures. Conversely, if we have a lot and we want less, in a way, we wouldn't get to a higher than we are now. We would either under achieve or statically achieve.

We are humans and we are imperfect. We always want more or something we don't have...which contradicts my statements before.

Anyway, just thought I'd drop my two millems' (equivalent of cents in Tunisian currency) worth of thought in the bucket.
