Rich is being able to live of the interest of your interest. Greed or being Greedy is a bit more. Have you ever heard about someone running a scam that generated Millions of dollars and wound up getting caught? Their greed is what got them caught. Why wasn't a few hundred thousand enough or a few million? Their greed kept them running the scam and wound up getting them caught. Greed is wanting or taking more than you actually need. I don't think it is greed if you want to hit the lottery so you can enjoy the good things in life, I think it is greed when you have more than you can spend, but keep looking for more. Me, im always broke...lol Keep Rockin! T!

I think Greedy is defined in terms of money and possessions. Whereas, Rich, to me, has several other meanings. I am rich because I am healthy. I am rich because I am surrounded by family and love. I am rich because I have friends from many diverse backgrounds from whom I can learn. I am rich because I am at peace with myself and I like who I am. I am rich because I have something to offer to the world. If I had no money and no possessions, whatsoever, I would still be rich by my definition.

I think that with rich you can afford to buy anything like said. Although the greedy person spends all the money to show off, or spends it on him/her self, where the non greedy rich person will keep the money and not bother buying things which he does not need. I also think that the regular rich person who isn't greedy would be willing to give money to charity or to those less fortunate than themselves where the greedy man would keep it all to himself.

greed is someone who plans to take that is not what is meant for him/her. rich is when you have lots of money or precious.

I feel rich is a person who is the king of his mind,intellect and heart and does not run after desires. Those who are yearning for more and more, irrespective of how much they have are beggers as they are always running after desires, which never fulfill.
