Why do we go?
Because there is greater healing for the soul in beholding splendor than there is in beholding self.
The really wonderful moments of joy in this world are not the moments of self-satisfaction, but self-forgetfulness.
Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and contemplating your own greatness is pathological.
At such moments we are made for a magnificent joy that comes from outside ourselves.”
— John Piper
