‘There is enough for everyone’s need but not enough for everyone’s greed’ (Mahatma Gandhi)**
My interpretation of this quote is that there is enough food, money, material possessions, jobs, people and time for everyone to fulfill their basic needs but it is never enough because everyone’s needs are different and constantly change over time. Everyone is always greedy for more out of life, whatever that means.
