"‘I have often thought,’ American philosopher William James wrote of the mysterious formation of identity, ‘that the best way to define a man’s character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it came upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely alive and active. At such moments, there is a voice inside which speaks and says, ‘This is the real me!’"
