Maurice Nicoll Quote – “Man has inner necessities…”

Man has inner necessities. His emotional life is not satisfied by outer things. His organization is not only to be explained in terms of adaptation to outer life. He needs ideas to give meaning to his existence. There is that in him that can grow and develop — some further state of himself — not lying in “tomorrow,” but above him.

Maurice Nicoll (1884 – 1953)
