    In the above comment I meant to say “While human nature is MALUABLE” – not valuable!

    Excellent discourse by Dr. Harriet Fraad. There is one more thing that I believe needs to be said: While human nature is valuable, there are certain universal characteristics. One is that WHEN a person is genuinely caring and sharing with others they will have a greater sense of wellbeing than the person who has been shaped to be greedy and avaricious. Also, it is never too late to change one’s “nature.” Sometimes the devastating consequences of greed do get a person to question their beliefs and then allow change to occur.
