More From Frederick Buechner
- "Religion points to that area of human experience where in one way or another man comes upon mystery as a summons to pilgrimage."
- "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."

- "I became a mom at 37 and having a child has been an emancipation for me."― Tori Amos
- "At different points in my life, I had grappled with the idea of going into the priesthood – in high school or law school. Where it ends, I’m not quite sure. Perhaps it ends with death, grappling with one’s spirituality."― James McGreevey
