Love for Truth

To go out of your comfort zone, to become more or less skeptical, to seek reason, or reconciliation between rational intentions and irrational instincts is a lifetime dedication. Love of truth may not lead you to happiness but it's arguably the only path to achieve wisdom and thus a happier state of mind. We cannot deny the importance of such endeavors. For us is as crucial to take care of our bodies as to sustain our mental and emotional health. So, never stop following your dreams and aspirations even though they may face you with the greatest difficulties in your life. Listen to your inner voice and you will find the support you need because you are not alone. There are the Truth and all the others who search for it. 

"I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me. " 

- Simone de Beauvoir
