How much is Enough?

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a living by what we give." - Winston Churchill


Paul Tillich, in his book Theology of Culture, tells a story about Cain and Abel. And whom, his own sibling and blood killed to gain. Fracticide, brother killing brother.


Tillich alludes to two strands of thought on these questions: on the one hand, freedom to choose to do good; and on the other hand, compulsion toward doing evil- to steal, lie, cheat, and murder.


This question; which cuts to the heart of human nature, is not best served by an either or answer. Humans have have succeeded in both universes.


But, Tillich describes,

" An is supposed to be the master of the world and of himself. But actually he has become a part of the reality that he has created, an object among objects, a thing among things, a cog within a universal machine in which he must adapt himself to in order not to be smashed by it."



How much is enough?



In Catch-22 is a satirical war novel by American author Joseph Heller, Joe said in an interview , :I have something he can never have,

"The knowledge that I've got enough.”



As an old Russian proverb says, "When money talks, the truth is silent."




Insatiable


satiated


satisfied



Hedonism


Molly's game-


Seneca- "being poor is not having too little, it's not having enough"
