emotion of longing or hoping for a person, object, or outcome

Desires is the emotion of someone or something wanting something. This can be similar to "wanting", "wishing", "longing" or "craving". Desires are closely related to agency: they motivate the agent to realize them. People usually desire things that will make them happy or bring them pleasure.[1]
