In the long run

The essential thing “in heaven and earth” is […] that there should be a long obiedience in the same direction; there thereby results, and has always resulted in the long run, something which has made life worth living.*
Frederick Nietzche)

There is a higher truth to all of this. Admitting it will get you laughed at.**
(Hugh Macleod)

Funny how the thing we most want to do is the same thing that gets us into the most trouble, but we know, keeping going along this path is the only way to make sense of life.

(*Frederik Nietzche, quote in Eugene Peterson’s A Long Obedience in the Same Direction.)
(**From gapingvoid’s blog: Why the messenger gets shot.)
