Buechner's Shattering Revelation...

"To journey for the sake of saving our own lives is little by little to cease to live in any sense that matters, even to ourselves, because it is only by journeying for the world's sake - even when the world bores and sickens and scares you half to death - that little by little we start to come alive"

Quoted in Listening to Your Life - Daily Meditations with Frederick Buechner (1992:22)
