Erich Fromm

Engrave this Quote Even if man's hunger and thirst and his sexual strivings are completely satisfied, 'he' is not satisfied. In contrast to the animal his most compelling problems are not solved then, they only begin. He strives for power or for love, or for destruction, he risks his life for religious, for political, for humanistic ideals, and these strivings are what constitutes and characterizes the peculiarity of human life.
-Erich Fromm, Man For Himself (New York: Rinehart and Company), 1947 Tell a Friend
