Modesty Is a Strength
There continue to be calls to refrain from being extravagant, which is even prohibited for state officials and civil servants. However, many are unable to heed these calls.
To live excessively but modestly is not easy to do. Thomas Hobbes, a philosopher, saw humans as inherently greedy creatures. It is not strange for humans to desire a life that is abundant, excessive and beautiful. One can get very attached to things once obtained.
There are tempting luxuries from the moment you wake in the morning to falling asleep at night. From mattresses, pillows, bathrooms, clothes, dresses, cosmetics, jewelry, watches, bags, mobile phones, vehicles and office equipment for work until finally returning to your dream home. We want everything to be amazing. Soap operas, films or advertisements all depict luxury that always attract attention.
