Greed by mou-s Greed by mou-s
I started this piece with a lot in mind, but unfortunately, I'm not very good at writing out my thoughts.

I've always felt that greed, along with the other "deadly sins" and many other human tendencies that we generally try to discourage, are merely exaggerated versions of some innate biological properties that help us with our survival and well-being. In the case of greed, I believe that there aren't much inherent wrongs with our natural desire for more things, but problems do arise when the desire goes over the line of social acceptability.

What I wanted to paint here is the beautiful side of a sin. To me, "greed" also manifests in our craving for knowledge, the longing for love, or simply the wish for a pleasant moment to last longer.
