devotion - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
I've never seen a person more devoted. At first glance her actions appeared scattered, her choices non-congruent with the rest of society, yet the key to her making sense to others was to see that her moral compass was perfect. She knew what love was, what it was not, and she charted her course though this messed up world making the best choices she could. Thus she had a different focus to everyone else, and, in time, it built her into the leader we all needed.
She was devoted to the craft, to mastery of the self and body as one unit. Every day she followed the same routine, realising that the way to get there was the maximum marathon that was repeatable daily. "Victory," she said, "does belong to the fastest tortoise."
I've never seen a man so devoted, to his work, to his family, to his lover. I guess it becomes a way of living, a way of seeing your own role in the world. Ultimately, it made him a person everyone could trust, a great role model for others.
He was devoted to love as a way of living, to apply it in practical ways and keep it in his heart that seeing situations from all view points may take work, but it was the work of the noble, of those able to bring greater peace wherever they go.
