Quote of the Day (Mark Edmundson, on How the Saint Lives)

“The saint seeks a life full of meaningful compassion. The acquisition of goods, the piling up of wealth, only serves to draw force from his proper pursuit. The saint lives — or tries to live — beyond desire. The saint lives for hope.” —Mark Edmundson, Self and Soul: A Defense of Ideals (2015)
