It is in this way that all through his life a man runs after things which are not the real desire of his soul. Sometimes he thinks it is his bodily appetites and passions which demand satisfaction, sometimes that it is his intellectual powers; but even if they were satisfied he would still find himself unhappy. "Perhaps", he thinks, "it is wealth, position, or honors that are lacking." Or he thinks, "It is not that I have not got the things I need, but I have not enough of them." If he has a motor-car, he is unhappy because he has no chauffeur.
