Quotation: There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others. We need to understand our environment and our relationship to it. We need to fulfill certain inner hungers: the need for happiness, for peace of mind—for wisdom. Swami Kriyananda [J. Donald Walters]

WE NEED TO FULFILL CERTAIN INNER HUNGERS: THE NEED FOR HAPPINESS, FOR PEACE OF MIND—FOR WISDOM.”
