“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess?
The word BALANCE comes to mind almost immediately. In a way it agrees with the quote and is quite easily accepted. However, in this modern world with full of excesses, how would too little sugar, salt or fat be bad? It is in fact what most doctors and nutritionists recommend to tackle obesity, heart disease and diabetes to name a few.
If everything refers to possessions or money, it can be like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett who know how to manage their billions and it doesn’t seem bad and the ‘poor’ village children in Cambodia that have so little but are so happy playing together and have a close knit family and community as well and it doesn’t seem bad at all.
Ok, this is obviously subjective and will become unending…. another excess.
