Quote for the Day

The hound that runs after the hare only because he sees the other hounds running will rest when he is tired, or go home again. But if he runs because he’s seen the hare, he won’t stop, however tired he gets, until he has caught it.

— Walter Hilton, The Stairway of Perfection

  1. Ellen Duell says:

    Persistence can be good, but I identify with the hare! Nonviolence is powerful AND kind. “The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.” (Psalm 33:5b)

  2. I think that’s good that you identify with the hare: since in this analogy, the hare is God.

  3. Somehow brings to mind SOS, Mirabai, or Rumi. Thanks, Carl. Peace.
