The satisfaction of every soul lies in its recognition. Every person desires that there would be someone in the world who understands him well, at least as well as he understands himself. A wife says, "I have a comfortable home and a good husband; I only wish that he would understand me better." The servant says, "I get good pay and the master is kind; I only wish that he would know me well." An artist is satisfied when his art is admired by the knower. This is the usual seeking of every soul.
