"It is not good to want a thing too much"

Juana believes "it is not good to want a thing too much." Why might she feel this way? What does it imply to you about the lives of Juana, Kino, and their people? What determines the nature of their lives?

Wanting somethng at the expense of everything else often backfires. Juana, Kino, and their people live lives of poverty, governened by foreigners. Their lives have been full of disappointment, but as a family unit...... they are happy.
