"We can all be reached all the time.

There never needs to be any silence or solitude in our lives.

And so we end up as good people, but as people who are not very deep:

not bad, just busy;

not immoral, just distracted;

not lacking in soul, just preoccupied;

not disdaining depth, 

just never doing the things that get us there."

(Ronald Rolheiser, Sacred Fire)
