Ralph Waldo Emerson, in "Circles", said:
"The one thing which we seek with insatiable desire is to forget ourselves, to be surprised out of our propriety, to lose our sempiternal memory, and to do something without knowing how or why...Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. The way of life is wonderful: it is by abandonment."
