“There are . . . not a few who live what might be called provisional lives, in which the choice is constantly postponed. Such people’s hearts are not in their present lives, for they are always waiting for the time–which never comes–when their true lives will begin.”

Paul Tournier, The Meaning of Persons. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1957, page 207.
