    I am greedy to the point where I want enough to not have to work, or have a business. But I dont feel the urge to have the best car etc.
    I am lazy but not to materialistic.... and you cant have to much fun on the unemployment, so you need to work to a position to be comfortably lazy and afford the things to keep you fit and occupied.

    it's all relative isn't it? i don't believe myself to be greedy. careful perhaps and insular probably but not greedy. we could have flasher cars and houses and gadgets but we don't. we live well and are saving to secure our childrens future and our retirement. i'm not greedy.

    but if i place myself into a different existence: slum, orphanage, fly-blown hospital, refugee tent etc. then suddenly the wealth and comfort of my family unit appears unimaginably greedy. i should give more. we should all give more.

    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”
