Plato on Not Knowing the Way

Book VI of Plato’s Republic (c. 380 BC), attributed to Plato by C. S. Lewis in The Pilgrim's Regress.

This every soul seeketh and for the sake of this doth all her actions, having an inkling that it is; but what it is she cannot sufficiently discern, and she knoweth not her way, and concerning this she hath no constant assurance as she hath of other things.
