Man’s Final End

The multitude of Legion has given place to one-pointedness, not to any of those evil one-pointedness of ambition or covetousness, or lust for power and fame, not even to any of the nobler, but still all too human one-pointedness of art, scholarship and science, regarded as ends in themselves, but to the supreme, more than human one-pointedness that is the very being of those souls who consciously and consistently pursue man’s final end, the knowledge of eternal Reality.

    ~ Perennial Philosophy by Aldous Huxley
