|—||John Piper (via awelltraveledwoman)|
"One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things."
"When a community loses its memory, its members no longer know one another. How can they know one another if they have forgotten or have never learned one another’s stories? If they do not know one another’s stories, how can they know whether or not to trust one another? People who do no trust one another do not help one another, and moreover they fear one another. And this is our predicament now."
-agrarian essayist, Wendell Berry
From, The Little Way of Ruthie Lemming, written by Rod Dreher.
