The Summoned Self

Some quotes from a nice article by David Brooks:

A 24-year-old can’t sit down and define the purpose of life in the manner of a school exercise because she is not yet deep enough into the landscape to know herself or her purpose.

Life comes to a point not when the individual project is complete but when the self dissolves into a larger purpose and cause.
