It was true then; it is true now. We should really show appreciation to those who come up with eternal wisdom.

Yeah. I guess their imagination is jam-packed and busy with different pictures. And there’s just no space for any more stuff - even so tiny…

The whole story is curious and uncommon, and abounds with incidents that fill the hearers with wonder and astonishment.

The reasons many of us can be in want is their wanting in modesty in favor of wanting what they haven't earned and/or shouldn't want.

But those who abound in riches have an ill-conceived reason for their wanting in/of the very same thing{s}.

Just to make it clear - 'want' is poverty.

Seems to me "Want" is clearly in want of a dictionary search.
