The means for getting anywhere is:
one step at a time
one foot in front of the other
three steps forward, one step back
line upon line
stitch by stitch
stroke after stroke
note by note
There is no other way. There are no shortcuts.
I’m still listening.
“Your place in heaven will seem to be made for you and you alone, because you were made for it — made for it stitch by stitch as a glove is made for a hand.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
