Bill Watterson, author of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strips, once said in his speech to Kenyon College, “We all have different desires and needs, but if we don’t discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we will live passively and unfulfilled.” Our world is full of people who know that they want something more in life, but only a small percentage of them know what it is they want, or even have the drive to achieve some far-away goal. These lives yearn for an escape from monotony, but why is it seemingly impossible for them to achieve freedom?
