Sailors, who navigate by the stars, do not for that sail to heaven, but upon the earth, nor do they look to the heavens for any reason other than to find land. Christians, who sigh only for heaven, where their treasure is kept and which is the safe harbor of their hopes, quite often look here below, not because they seek the land, but in order to find the way to heaven. Seek Jesus Christ and what is above.”

~St Francis de Sales, The Sign of the Cross
