Robert A. Burton Quotes: Though Not Necessarily Aware Of When We

Though Not Necessarily Aware Of When We Feel Purpose And Meaning, We Are Nearly Always Aware Of The Sickening Feeling When We Don't Possess Them. This Isn't An Intellectual Misapprehension; It Is A Gut Sense Of Disorientation And A Loss Of Personal Direction. Rarely Are Brute Mental Effort And Self-help Pep Talks Able To Rekindle The Missing Feeling. For Most Of Us, We Simply Wait Patiently, Knowing From Past Experience That The Feeling Will Return In Its Own Sweet Time ... Of Particular Interest Is [Tolstoy's] Conclusion As To The Inability Of Science And Reason To Provide A Personal Sense Of Meaning.
