She saw what that kind of greed leads people to, why would she go down the same path and just 'hope' it will turn out alright?
She didn't say more either because it's the Japanese way, or because she was hoping Lawrence would understand from that little - which he did. They both felt less alone.

And she's hoping against hope. She knows that despite how much money he had, her husband ended up just wanting more. Never really happy. She's hoping she won't be like him. Why? No reason. She's hoping against hope. It probably says something deep and touching about the human condition and progress, but whatever.
