Something about Os Guinness…

"In America, we have been taught to admire the lone free agent who creates new worlds. But for the person leading the Summoned Life, the individual is small and the context is large. Life comes to a point not when the individual project is complete but when the self dissolves into a larger purpose and cause."

–– "The Summoned Self" by David Brooks, NYT, 2.8.10
