As a norm for us humans, we are never content with what we have.I for one had a dream of having a bicycle and I kept asking my dad for one.I would even go hungry out of anger whenever he did not bring it to me. When my aunt got word of this,she one day took me on a walk.On the way,she told me a short story. Once there was a man who was busy,cycling back home.He stopped on the way after spotting a very fancy car.He then said, "I wish I had a car.I wouldn't be melting in this sun". Behind him was another man who was walking .He saw his bicycle and said, " I wish I could afford a bicycle, I wouldn't be walking under this sun". Ashe went abit further,he came across a man who was on a wheelchair, unable to walk.The man on the wheelchair said, "If only I had strong legs,I would not mind walking two kilometers from home to work". The last man was different from the rest.He had no legs.When he saw this on the wheelchair, he said, " I wish I had legs like him ,I would be wearing shoes even for my satisfaction ". I got one thing from this story,how important it really is to be content.Other people yearn for that which you think is not enough.

"As a norm for us humans, we are never content with what we have." I don't know who you think you're talking for. Definitely not for me.

@Blymur778 Exactly. We *are* different. Therefore generalisations don't make sense.

Sadly, what you say is true for we humans find it hard to appreciate what we have, rather, only see what we don't have. It's great to dream of big things, but we should also never forget to be grateful of the things we currently have.

Did you ever get your bicycle? I wish you did. Yeah I am the most content person and not greedy to have anything more, in fact, I want less.

It is human nature to want something that you do not have. Be happy with what you have.
