I might actually know that I’m jealous but I might not fully understand the concept of jealousy or I might not want to acknowledge such thoughts because of self-deceit. Either way, I still have the ability to know my jealousy but other people, with much more experience than I am, can acknowledge it faster than I do.
I strongly believe that humans possess a tremendous power upon themselves. As a human being, not only that I have a privileged access to my own thoughts but I also have an ultimate ability to process those thoughts in such a way that nobody else can. This ability allows me to achieve self-knowledge and to become a fully developed individual.

Humans seek to find meaning so that emptiness will not pervade every thought, every deed, with the coldness of reality as seen by an unemotional eye.... [tags: Meaning of life, Existentialism]

- I have never pondered on such a question of what it means to be a human being. What it means to be a human being is not just having a face, eyes, heart, or being able to drive a car, or to own a house. Being a human being is much more than that, deeper and more passionate. Being a human being is to have the ability to having rational thought and to think deeply. Being a human is finding a meaning or a purpose.

- The strange thing that happened to Tolstoy was that he was overcome with perplexity and an arrest of life. He said it was if he didn’t know how to live or what to do. Eventually they went away but then those moments came back oftener and oftener. The arrests of life always appeared in the question: Why. Well, and Then.
