who has thunder and who has lightning?
a high handed moral lifestyle? are we at risk of being more holy, respectable, law-abiding, respectable, responsible only because we have more in life, or are good morals also cultivated in the presence of having nothing.

this is probably a very flawed question to be asking and i probably shouldn't even be asking it in the first place if i don't know first hand what it's like to be growing up with nothing.

but i've had some things, and i wonder whether those opportunities were what gave me a chance to make decisions to not steal, or cheat others of their money, being satisfied or content because you have the luxury to know that material success can't buy you happiness, only because you've had some sort of material substance you've never needed to crave for even the basics.
