The Illusion of Importance

It's easy to operate under the illusion that what we are doing is so important we cannot stop doing it.
We think we cannot slow down, especially for something so trifling as a turtle [or duck in the road].
But that is exactly the sort of thing we must never be too busy ... [to do].
Stopping is a spiritual act.
It is the refuge where we drink [in] life ....
(Sue Monk Kidd, Firstlight, p. 121)
