I can have all the money and cars in the world and be unhappy. Once you find out that money and fame and success doesn’t do it, where do you go then? That’s a big dilemma. I had all those things: A beautiful wife, cars, a home, money, friends. All the things that you think a man could need and it didn’t stop me drinking. I was depressed. I was suicidal.
There remains deep in the soul (if I dare use that word) a persistent and unconscious anxiety that something is missing – some ingredient that makes life worth living.
– Prince Charles
Our lifelong nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation.
– C. S. Lewis
