Quote of the Week

September 14, 2006

“Never in the history of mankind has the average man had so many material possessions and yet never has he been more restless and unhappy.”

“We can achieve pleasures; but no pleasure–regardless of its intensity–can satisfy the longing of the human soul. Man is made for better things.”

“There is something paradoxical in the fact that men yearn so deeply for happiness (which Aristotle claims to be the highest good) and yet so often choose paths which cannot possibly lead them to that goal. Man is often the artisan of his own doom, his own worst enemy.”

Alice von Hildebrand, The Art of Living
