“If a vocation is as much the work that chooses you as the work you choose, then I knew from that time on that my vocation was, for better or for worse, to involve that searching for, and treasuring, and telling of secrets which is what the real business of words is all about.” -Frederick Buechner

I vowed to stop lifting quotes from Barbara Abercrombie’s A Year of Writing Dangerously. But I read Frederick Buechner, too, and this quote is so spot-on to what I’m feeling this morning, that I feel compelled to share this. (Click on the link to go to Abercrombie’s blog.)
