a long obedience…

road“The essential thing in heaven and earth is… that there should be a long obedience in the same direction; there thereby results, and has always resulted in the long run, something which has made life worth living.”

(Friedrick Nietzsche quoted in Eugene Peterson’s ‘A Long Obedience in the Same Direction’ p.17).
