We are born with many instinctive desires, including the most vital one, which is the basic desire to live. Since desires are necessary to the maintenance of human life, they are in that sense beneficial. But simply to pursue desires with no higher aim is to become a slave to desire, and this can lead only to misfortune for oneself and others.
Being a slave to our desire is dangerous! It is true, we should have a higher aim. It would make our life more meaningful for having lived.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend, Foz!
Thanks for the comment!
Have a lovely weekend too!
Very nice quote Foz. When we are only guided by our desires we miss something far more important, life itself.
Have a lovely week-end! xx
