Everywhere they ask the same question, how best to live.

An anonymous person once wrote: The wise don't expect to find life worth living; they make it that way.

After spending several months on a schooner wandering the lonely Tuamotu islands of French Polynesia, James Norman Hall came across another ship anchored in a small atoll whose captain gave him a pile of recent newspapers from Tahiti. Hall read the papers that evening, then wrote in his notebook:

". . . I heard as in a dream the far-off clamor of the outside world . . . but there was no reality, no allurement in the sound. I saw men carrying trivial burdens with an air of immense effort, of grotesque self-importance; scurrying in breathless haste on useless errands, gorging food without relish; sleeping without refreshment; taking their leisure without enjoyment; living without the knowledge of content; dying without ever having lived. . . "
