day seven

The mentally alert person is not content to live merely from day to day, completely circumscribed by such things as food, money, clothing, and entertainment. Occasionally [s]he is tempted to speculate on why [s]he is living and on what the controlling forces of his[her] life are.

-Dr. Wilfred Funk and Normal Lewis in 30 days to a More Powerful Vocabulary (1954 edition)

Occasionally? Ha. So, what is the word for that then?
