Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

A Thought: Brief But Mighty

"Great God! Our lowliness takes heart to play
beneath the shadow of Thy state;
The only comfort of our littleness
Is that Thou art so great."
~Fredrick W. Faber.
