On the Way

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

Escaping the Storm ~ Jonah

Poets have wrong'd poor storms: such days are best;
They purge the air without, within the breast.

Storms are the triumph of his art.

~ George Herbert, from "The Storms" and "The Bag," in The Country Parson, The Temple

cited by Eugene Peterson in Under the Unpredictable Plant:  An Exploration in Vocational Holiness
