More From Frederick Buechner
- "Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too."
- "Religion points to that area of human experience where in one way or another man comes upon mystery as a summons to pilgrimage."
