It would be a few years before Freud thought the same thing.

I think there is still a good deal of unmapped country within all of us, at least only God can read the map, not our fellowmen or even ourselves.

Any explanation is good enough as long as it's explanation and not excuse "of our gusts and storms".

You don't know about 100% yourself unless you are in some situations that you need to react right away.

That's why our gusts and storms remain mostly unexplained.

Context from: DANIEL DERONDA

CHAPTER XXIV.


"I question things but do not find
One that will answer to my mind:
And all the world appears unkind."
—WORDSWORTH.
...

But the movement of mind which led her to keep the necklace, to fold it up in the handkerchief, and rise to put it in her nécessaire, where she had first placed it when it had been returned to her, was more peculiar, and what would be called less reasonable. It came from that streak of superstition in her which attached itself both to her confidence and her terror—a superstition which lingers in an intense personality even in spite of theory and science; any dread or hope for self being stronger than all reasons for or against it. Why she should suddenly determine not to part with the necklace was not much clearer to her than why she should sometimes have been frightened to find herself in the fields alone: she had a confused state of emotion about Deronda—was it wounded pride and resentment, or a certain awe and exceptional trust? It was something vague and yet mastering, which impelled her to this action about the necklace. There is a great deal of unmapped country within us which would have to be taken into account in an explanation of our gusts and storms.

I agree we know very little about ourselves . For example a man or woman might express an unexpected behavior in special circumstance that he/she wouldn't do in normal circumstances. That's because much of our reactions are kept under control . Sometimes we don't even know why we reacted that way.
