  1. Emeasoba George:

    Avarice is reprehensible acquisitiveness, excessive and insatiable desire to acquire or possess more wealth, riches or material gain than one needs or deserves. In other words, avarice is the highest level of greed or greediness. Now listen up, wealth or success is good and worthwhile too. But, you should not quest for it desperately, fraudulently or dubiously. Besides that, genuine wealth or success is meant to be acquired or achieved overtime and not at all overnight. -Emeasoba George
