Needs and Wants

"What difference does it make how much is laid away in a man's safe or in his barns, how much head of stock he grazes or how much capital he puts out at interest, if he is always after what is another's and only counts what he has yet to get, never what he has already? You ask what is the proper limit to a person's wealth? First, having what is essential, and second, having what is enough."

--- Seneca
