  1. There is no end to man greed. There is very rare person who can resist to the temptation of power and wealth. Nearly all man want more power and mony even in the expense of causing pain and suffering for others . How big soul have those person who are not slave of power and money. I really adore them.

    • I’m glad you liked the story of How Much Land Does a Man Need, Soroosh. Actually, I think kids below the age of 10 cannot understand this moral story, which is also rather long. However, I should admit that the concept is not that complicated.

  2. I enjoyed the story and its moral lesson. This story is good for greedy people who want more land and possession in their lives and never get enough, but at the end after death they can’t carry those with them.
