A Blind and Eager Pursuit

“There is not any thing in this world, perhaps, that is more talked of, and less understood, than the business of a happy life. It is every person’s wish and design; and yet not one in a thousand . . . knows wherein that happiness consists. We live, however, in a blind and eager pursuit of it; and the more haste we make in a wrong way, the further we are from our journey’s end.”

~ Seneca (3 BC – 65 AD), quoted by David Naugle in Reordered Love, Reordered Lives (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Eermands, 2008), 9.
