Greed demands more cost-effective solutions. The problem is that many people have problems with the economy. What is cheaper-a one-time thing or reusable? What is cheaper-to do good or bad? To make the first time or long and tedious to finish and redo? Make it whole or half?
Are you complaining about living in hell? It's all your greed and greed. Indeed, in hell molten gold and extract energy. Light in hell. You yourself are a moth, flying into the light. What motivated you? Love the shiny? Fear of darkness? Awareness of your own insignificance?
From fear not swear, for fear this the devil, and the devil – lies. The oath given in fear is a contract for the sale of the soul to the devil. However, the oath given in passion is also the sale of the soul to the devil, for passion is the mortal sin of greed. Greed is fear, to get less than you want.
Greed… greed… I see it as the heaviest human sin. I guess, greed is some kind of sadomasochism. Guess how many mice got into mousetraps because of free cheese. And how many snakes choked over something big that they tried to swallow… Or how much one overpaid… because of the desire to save money…
Greed may become the source of many sins...
It's greed that can make one do one's job badly because of trying to take shortcuts or save materials. Something done badly is a heavy sin. A lot of work was left half-done or gummed up because of greed. It's greed that can make a person throw money away and still get nothing. And pay twice as more later. Thus, it will be a sin of energy inefficiency.
There's hardly anything that is punished by destiny more than greed. Pain is greed's middle name.
The first road to hell is fear. The second one is lie. The third one is greed. The 4th one is avarice. The 5th one is ignorance and stupidity. The 6th one is anger. The 7th is dejection, lack of faith and dream. There are other roads too, but the first seven ones will suffice you, I guess.
Rich and poor are alike. The rich clung to the wealth he has, and the poor clung to the wealth he does not have. The sin of the poor is greed and envy, he literally goes crazy about what he does not have, and he is ready to kill for what he has.
That we do not appreciate, lost cry. It is always a consequence of intemperance and greed. We run after others, we don't watch ours. It is necessary to restrain your greed and greed, by an effort of will doing what you do not really want, and what you want, not doing.
