sinking sands of being cheated

When someone always gets things for free, they are unable to place or to feel a value of that thing. It becomes worthless and that person eventually feels cheated - by themselves or whoever sold them the idea of getting it for free. They also lose their moral ground which is even worse.

A person with no ethics is like a ship with no rudder, it goes round in circles and has no direction.

Conversely, when what we desired or even needed cost us, we feel it is worth something. That in turn changes our attitude towards working with it. we study it, check-it-out, learn and generally become determined to get the maximum out of it. That in turn makes vast improvements on our music and gives us not only a direction and a feeling that we are going somewhere, but a feeling that we have some moral ground to stand on instead of sinking sand.
