Driven

I read this in The History of God. I like it:

“The unaided intellect cannot reach the vision it seeks; it is continually coming up against barriers to understanding that demand that we change our attitudes. In all cultures, human beings have been driven by the same imperatives: to be intelligent, responsible, reasonable, loving and, if necessary, to change. The very nature of humanity, therefore, demands that we transcend ourselves and our current perceptions, and the very nature of serious human inquiry.”—Karen Armstrong, The History of Godpurple flowers
