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.

"Level to the ground
my Jericho Walls of a rebel heart...
There is much unconquered territory in my nature,
scourge out the buyers and sellers of my soul's temple,
and give me in return pure desires,
and longings after perfect holiness.

~from Puritan Prayers
