"When our individual interests and prospects do not seem worth living for, we are in desperate need for something apart from us to live for. All forms of dedication, devotion, loyalty and self-surrender are in essence a desperate clinging to something which might give worth and meaning to our lives."
(1902-1983) American author, philosopher, awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom
The True Believer (1951)
