This, you have have noticed, is what makes rivers crooked, and it makes men and women crooked too. The easy path never goes anywhere but downward, and spiritually, that is not the direction we want to go. Worthwhile destinations always take extra effort.

The ancient adage is true which tells us, "A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
