Pilgrimage to Canterbury

Quotes
Detox from London. No longer confronted with images of succeeds, wealth, consumption, novelty.
Travel light – it is amazing how little you need.

Keep the destination in mind – it gives meaning to the toil. But enjoy the day whatever it beings.
A short history of pilgrimage.

Silence prayer, conversation wrestling with ideas. Eventually peace

Sleep that comes not just from tiredness but from stillness and completion

The absence of boredom. How much of what we do is driven by avoiding boredom.

The pilgrim road is almost forgotten, and is in part a fiction or a romantic ideal. But it is real and ancient and tied together out history. It connects us to who we are and where we come from. It is like the Christian faith.

 

All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.
Friedrich Nietzsche

It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.
Francis of Assisi

Walking is man’s best medicine.
Hippocrates

It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven.

Matthew Henry
