“Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to never was there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... in yourself right now is all the place you've got."
from a sermon by Hazel Motes atop the hood of his car in the opera, Wise Blood, adapting the novel by Flannery O'Connor
