“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess?
Sometimes you don’t want a lot of something, like fat, or cholesterol, or allergies. Obviously in those situations an excess is a very bad thing. So her statement is confirmed as to these items, and millions like them (acne, for example). The things that are good in excess are money, good friends, happiness, sanity. This also does not appear to contradict her statement.
But is she saying that too much is as bad as too little when considering everything, or is she saying that too much of everything in the world is a bad thing. The answer to that is “Duh!”
