A student has asked me for the source of the following quotation which he
believes is from Vygotsky, *Thought and Language/Speech*. I have been looking
but have not found it. Can anyone help?

"Thought is not begotten by thought; it is engendered by motivation, i.e.,
by our desires and our needs, our interests and emotion. Behind every
thought there is an affective-volitional tendency, which holds the answer
to the last 'why' in the analsysis of thinking."
