With virtually every question that matters personally there is also a social - and perhaps universal - significance (Moutakas, C. (1990) Heuristic Research London: Sage)
I love this quote because it shows the importance of our own experience. Too often we assume that our own struggles, difficulties and feelings are not experienced by others, or are unimportant in the grand scheme of things. However, Moustakas turns this on its head by reminding us that those experiences are of the deepest and most urgent importance; and that the things that matter to us, also matter to others - to humanity.
