    IELTS Task 2: People are never satisfied and always want more. In what ways is this a good thing and in what ways is this a bad thing?

    With the development of the economy and technology, people have the chance to purchase a more diverse living style. Some people become greedy for material possessions, while others are eager to be rich in their souls.

    In my opinion, dissatisfaction is a boost for purchasing higher mental experience, as well as deep science researches, while it can also lead to over materialistic.

    As the old saying goes: People eat bread to live, but not live for bread. Our daily lives are far more than eating, working and sleeping. Domains such as art and literature can bring us about lots of wisdom as well. If we possess a high aesthetic culture, we can have more common topics with a group of friends, and they will find us an interesting soul. Furthermore, human society is propelled by the dissatisfaction for our current state. We try our best to discover numerous scientific theories and create many inventions to raise our working-force in order to accumulate more wealth. Dissatisfaction is the reason why we had two Industry Revolutions and Science Revolution.

    However, dissatisfaction brings about greedy. People aspire to earn a high salary, and they want bigger houses and more luxurious cars. They connect wealth and material possessions with happiness and success. In some extreme cases, dissatisfaction causes greed and crime. We should return to traditional values like sharing.

    In conclusion, people are all willing to hunt for more. However, sometimes, the priority is to enrich our mental world.

    Nowadays, our living standard is raised because society becomes abundant in material life. Some people are unsatisfied with the wealth they already have. They become greedy for material possessions, while others try to pursuit mental enrichment.

    In my opinion, dissatisfaction with the present states encourages people to pursuit a more colorful lifestyle. It also helps us to make progress in scientific domains, On the contrary, the dissatisfaction can also lead to excessive materialistic.

    As the old saying goes: People eat bread to live, but they are not living for bread. Our daily lives are far more than eating, working and sleeping. People shouldn’t be merely content with basic living activities. We can improve our daily enjoyment by learning other domains, such as art, literature, and philosophy. If we possess a high aesthetic taste, we can have more common topics with a group of friends, and they will find us an interesting soul. Furthermore, our living quality is improved because we are not content with the current state and try to change it. We discovered new scientific theories and created many inventions to raise our productivity in order to accumulate more wealth. Dissatisfaction is the reason why we had two Industry Revolutions and Science Revolution.

    However, dissatisfaction brings about greed. People aspire to earn a high salary. They want bigger houses and more luxurious cars. They connect wealth and material possessions with happiness and success. In some extreme cases, people hunt for fame and wealth by all means, regardless of invading other’s rights and then cause crime. We should return to traditional values like sharing.

    In conclusion, people are all willing to earn more possessions. However, sometimes, a contented mind is a perpetual feast.
