Excess Quotes

As said by Hippocrates, “everything in excess is opposed to nature” and there is a lot of truth in his saying. Nothing in excess is good. For example, if you have money in excess then you turn into a spendthrift and never understand the struggle of a pauper. Even excess of food, alcohol or anything for that matter, leads to repercussions. Anything in excess disrupts the simple supply and demand ratio. Demand is defined as how much the consumers crave for the product.

The word 'excess' is a threat to our environment as well. Excess of automobiles, the smoke and traffic caused by them have triggered to an increase in pollution and chaos, especially in big cities. Excess of effluents from industries are dumped into water bodies like lakes and oceans, causing threats to aquatic life. Thus, such a practice has led to global warming and may spell doom in the near future.

Many people who crave for partying and flings, tend to indulge in them in excess and regret their acts sooner or later. Read these excess quotes to understand what great thinkers had to say about indulging in a practice more often than required.
