Daily Prompt Want Everything=No Money; Want Nothing=Money


All or Nothing?
Daily Prompt:  “Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.” — Sylvia Plath

Which do you find more dangerous: wanting nothing, or wanting everything?

I don’t think I’m philosophical enough for this question to make sense.  Whenever I think about someone who wants everything I think about a shopping spree present I once gave someone who ran up and down the shopping mall almost literally grabbing everything they could get their hands on, pulling clothes off of racks and grabbing jewelry.  I was in shock as I watched my money get spent with so little regard.  I have a feeling that a day later, it was all just a mess of free stuff to the person and not as meaningful of a gift as I intended it to be.

I would say the quote would be more accurate if she had said “Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, we end up with no money and therefore are forced to want nothing.”
