The Business of Living

“… The prayer of the fourth-century church father Saint Gregory of Nazianzus, who prayed: ‘I am spent, O my Christ, Breath of my life. Perpetual stress and surge, in league together, make long, oh long this life, this business of living. Grappling with foes within and foes without, my soul hath lost its beauty, blurred your image.’”

Paul D. Robbins, Leadership, 1988, p. 146
