    I don't think so, but some times it suddenly does tongue

    Absolutely not - it is consumed by love, family, and making spiritual connections.

    Nope.  Greed has never been one of my "things".

    My soul is consumed by chocolate...  and maybe caramel.  But mostly chocolate.

    Sometimes- it depends on the day, but mostly I'm glad to be alive and have necessities.

    No. I have strict limits to how much money/material items I need or want.  I get my enjoyment out of helping others and enjoying a good joke or a good book.

    Depends on the definition of greed. If it's more than what you can conceivably use, than no. If greed is wanting the money to ensure for my own wellbeing and that of my loved ones for years to come, than yes, I am consumed by greed and not the least bit ashamed of it.

    Honestly is someone's soul was consumed by greed they wouldn't even know it unless they knew God.

    I don't believe it is.  I want to have enough so that I do not have to worry about being homeless.  But the possession of things or great amounts of money are not important to me.

    Greed for money, power,material things?Definitely not. There is more to life than that. Having what I need right now is more than enough for me. I couldn't ask for anything more.

    Maybe, we all are. Life is a pursuit for happiness. We want, crave and desire what makes us happy. And then we want more of it. Who gets up and wants nothing. We want gratification, satisfaction and all the love we can get. Humans want. If we weren't such greedy little buggers, our want would always be directed at the good of someone else. We don't realize how greedy we are because we associate greed with money, but, we can greed for food, for fame, for power, for beauty, for love, and endless other things. It isn't necessarily bad. Its what we are willing to do to satisfy our greed that makes it good or bad.

    I had a level of greed in the form of selfishness when I was younger but I have never been a tight wad.  However I still have a degree of selfishness in my life and it is a form of self preservation; it does not rule me and I consider it more of a virtue than a vice.

    Self interest, yes. Greed, no. There is a big difference. And I agree with nightwork4 about that soul thing.
