Is This All?

"The world's offerings are not bad. By and large they are good. Some of them are good enough to command our enthusiasm for many lifetimes. Eventually, however, every human being comes to realize with Simone Weil that 'there is no true good here below, that everything that appears to be good in this world is finite, limited, wears out, and once worn out, leaves necessity exposed in all its nakedness.' When this point is reached, one finds oneself asking even of the best this world can offer, 'Is this all?"

-The World's Religions, Huston Smith
