A Quote. Of Faith. Of Believers. Of Sojourners and Pilgrims.

A staff in the hand does not identify a pilgrim (many a person, after all, could carry a staff without being a traveler) as definitely as calling oneself a believer publicly testifies that one is on a journey, because faith simply means: What I am seeking is not here, and for that very reason I believe it.

—Søren Kierkegaard
