the greatest danger

"The great danger facing all of us is not that we shall make an absolute failure of life ... but that we may fail to perceive life's greatest meaning, fall short of its highest good, miss its deepest and most abiding happiness, be unconscious of life ablaze with the light of the Presence of God -- and be content to have it so -- that someday we may wake up and find that always we have been busy with the husks and trappings of life and have really missed life itself." -- Phillips Brooks (1835-93)
