I Don't See It

Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace, Book V, Chapter 10 (Prince Andrew to Pierre; tr. Louise and Aylmer Maude):
"You say: join our brotherhood and we will show you the aim of life, the destiny of man, and the laws which govern the world. But who are we? Men. How is it you know everything? Why do I alone not see what you see? You see a reign of goodness and truth on earth, but I don't see it."
