The Poetic Life

“I see no reason to spend your life writing poems unless your goal is to write great poems. To desire to write poems that endure — we undertake such a goal certain of two things: that in all likelihood we will fail, and that if we succeed we will never know it.” — Donald Hall, Poet

This applies for more than just writing poems. I would apply this idea to any effort of mine to follow Christ and build the Kingdom of God.
