A book is good company. It is full of conversation without loquacity. It comes to your longing with full instruction, but pursues you never.
Henry Ward Beecher

Censure acquits the raven, but pursues the dove.
Juvenal

Each pursues his own theory, little solicitous to correct or improve it by an attention to what is advanced by his opponents.

First 3 statements are absolutely agreed ..........4th one ...agree to disagree with reservation because, to me , desires must not have an end unless otherwise , it becomes a Greed. Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek

And the 3rd statement "pursues knowledge " may be a forced entity to get over the immediate crisis but when it comes to desire for knowledge , it then becomes real ecstasy

In all 4 types of hunger in your Q,the answer in Vedic perspective is that "there should be BHAKSHY-A-BHAKSHYA VIVEK"
That means rationality is a sine que non.
