I think Jerome is explaining some basic human psychology that has not changed over history. People desire something other than what they have. We, as human beings, seem to want more or at least something that somebody else has. Is this because of our own low sense of worth or basic human greed? Jerome has touched on one of the major flaws of the human condition.
