“I need more money,” he said. “I need to work harder and make more money. There are lots of things I need to buy, that I need to enjoy; and in order to fulfil my dreams,” he paused, and looked up at her, “I need money,” he ended, exhaling deeply.

She quietly looked at him for a few seconds before asking, “Will you ever be satisfied? Will you ever have enough?” The tinge of irritation was all too apparent.

“NEVER!!” he barked back. “I shall never have enough. The sole reason why humans were placed on earth was so that they are never satisfied. It is foolish to think of being satisfied. Look around you. The world today is what it is because man over centuries has remained unsatisfied. The moment we become satisfied with our surroundings, with whatever we have achieved, all progress will come to a screeching halt. Don’t be greedy, but stay unsatisfied.”

She was overcome by the force of his argument, and his fiery gaze. She lowered her eyes and quietly walked away.

To quote Thomas Edison "We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present."

It is true that complacency can be the biggest enemy of growth, be it in any materialistic or spiritual conquests of mankind.. But in the endless quest to quench the vociferous appetite to conquer, one often forgets the truly important things in one's life..

Never let her feel that your drive to achieve has superceded herself..


P.S: When a woman lowers her eyes and walks away, GO AFTER HER.. ;)
