Our souls are not hungry for fame, comfort, wealth, or power. Those rewards create as many problems as they solve. Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter so that the world will at least be a little bit different for our having passed through it.

Rabbi Harold Kushner,
quoted in Never Eat Alone
