Sadly, the unbeliever attempts the whole of his life to quench the unquenchable with something other than God. So, he pursues fame, money, power, wealth, fitness, work, wisdom, education, love, or any other creative thing that can perhaps quiet the desperate cry of his empty soul. But none of the things he finds – whether politics or popularity or creativity or anything else this world offers – can ever answer the call of his heart. He can pursue happiness, but he will never find it. As soon as he acquires one desire it turns into dust – as does the next, and the next day after that, until life finally ends in disappointment (Tom Patton).
