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.

On Mellowness of Heart

"When we choose to accept loss,we gain something altogether different. We hold life and others loosely, relinquishing the burden of being in control, and look instead for the small wonders, the tender mercies that help us find peace along the way toward eternity."

~Lisa Graham McMinn
