“To put meaning in one’s life may end in madness, But life without meaning is the torture of restlessness and vague desire — It is a boat longing for the sea and yet afraid.” – Poet Edgar Lee Masters, who died on this day in 1950

How often I have found that we grow to maturity not by doing what we like, but by doing what we should. How true it is that not every ‘should’ is a compulsion, and not every ‘like’ is a high morality and true freedom. – Theologian Karl Rahner, born on this day 1904.
