Voice of the Day: Joan Chittister

By Administrator 08-28-2007

Study is hard work. It is so much easier to find something else to do in its place than to stay at the grind of it. We have excuses aplenty for avoiding the dull, hard, daily attempt to learn. There is always something so much more important to do than reading. There is always some excuse for not stretching our souls with new ideas and insights now or yet or ever.

- Joan Chittister
Quoted in Essential Monastic Wisdom, by Hugh Feiss
