        We humans all seem coded to aspire,        
        Propelled toward states of being ever higher,       
        Increasing knowledge and capacities,        
        Urged on by appetites we cannot ease.

        We're sapient in knowing that we know
        And yet we know how far we have to go
        If ever we might hope to realize        
        Our highest human hope of growing wise.
