I came across this news item in the BBC News dated Monday August 13, 2007:
"A teenager is taken to hospital after overdosing on espresso coffee while working in a sandwich shop."
Well, is Coffee really that bad? I don't think so. However, overdose of caffeine is dangerous.
Anyway, too much of anything even finest thing can be bad. Too much water and you drown. Too much food and you get sick. Even having too much money can sometimes be worrisome having to worry of thieves breaking into our house or kidnap our love ones. Good works and good health are the exception that I can think of.
"Too much work, too much vacation, too much of any one thing is unsound." - Walter Annenberg
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal" - Matthew 6:19
"If a person studies too much and exhausts his reflective powers, he will be confused, and will not be able to apprehend even that which had been within the power of his apprehension. For the powers of the body are all alike in this respect." - Maimonides
“Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest.” - Peace Pilgrim
“The happiness of too many days is often destroyed by trying to accomplish too much in one day. We would do well to follow a common rule for our daily lives - DO LESS, AND DO IT BETTER.” - Dale E. Turner
What do you think? Do you have any problem knowing how much is too much?
