"[O]ur five transcendental desires for perfect truth, love, goodness, beauty, and being (home) will continue to affect us whether we acknowledge them or not. We will still want to know everything about everything, even if we abandon the pursuit of truth; still desire perfect love, even if we think it does not exist; still desire perfect justice and goodness, even if we have been disappointed by people's conduct and the judicial system; still desire perfect beauty, even if we believe it is unattainable; and still desire perfect being (home), even if we believe that there is nothing beyond us but emptiness and darkness." Robert Spitzer.
