“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little”. – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess?
First of all, with all due respect to Edna Ferber, who was an American novelist, short story writer and playwright, I believe that the quote above is very bad from many points of view.
Words “too much” and “too little” are not applicable to many things. For example, it can’t be too little ocean, too much beauty or too little children.
It also can’t be too little criminals or too many competent people in the government.
In general, “too little” and “too much” are subjective terms. In my country many people believe that $10 per hour for their work is too little. In some countries it is “too much”.
Too little of pain is better than too much pain.
If too little people can hack in your bank account it is also very good.
It can’t be too much resources:: pure drinking water, oil, woods, highly qualified people. The more resources country has the better.
Even if we apply Edna Ferber’s quote only to wealth, I can’t agree with her!
People can have too little of everything and be very happy if they are loved (see the photo below).
During the Great Patriotic War my mother and I lost everything (including relatives and friends), we starved but we were happy together.
Many great people initially had nothing but it motivated them to learn, to work hard, to meet their goals.
Is it bad that people who created new companies or new products, or many thousands of jobs or are wonderful entertainers became very rich??
I don’t think that it is bad or that they have too much.
I believe that we should pray that our country has many such people because without them all others would live much worse! The more rich people a country has the better!
Let’s all be rich! No limits!
