Finding What We Are Searching For?

I was reading during my lunch today, and came across a quote from former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger that stuck with me and got me to thinking.  I got to thinking, do we ever find what we are searching for, and do we even know?

Here is the quote:

“To Americans, usually tragedy is wanting something very badly and not getting it.  Many people have had to learn in their private lives, and nations have had to learn in their historical experience, that perhaps the worst form of tragedy is wanting something badly, getting it, and finding it empty.”

Maybe we need to redefine what we are searching for.
