“When I dust, I am humbled, because I, too, am dust. As a writer, I must begin, again and again, at the most terrifying of places, the blank page. And as a person of faith I am always beginning again with prayer. I can never learn these things, once and for all, and master them. I can only perform them, set them aside, and then start over. Beginning requires that I remain willing to act, and to summon my hopes in the face of torpor. Above all, beginning again means rejecting the self-censurious spirit that will arise to scorn my efforts as futile.”

Katheleen Norris in “Acedia and Me”
