Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh (1914–2003)
Most of the time we live as though we were writing a draft for the life which we will live later. We live not in a definitive way, but provisionally, as though preparing for the day when we really will begin to live. We are like people who write a rough draft with the intention of making a fair copy later. But the trouble is that the final version never gets written.
With thanks to the Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh Archive.
