KCT Thought of the Week, January 6, 2012

“Most people were wrong about life, she thought.  It was not a struggle against temptation as she had been taught in church.  Nor was it a search for truth as the philosophers said, or even for happiness, much as humanity craved happiness.  It was rather a kind of waiting—a waiting upon the graciousness and the bounty of the things which had been, in order that the things to come might find one free and unafraid.”  Mary Ellen Chase in “Mary Peters”
