QUESTER’S CREED


I am a Quester: one who quests. I travel through time and space, by way of senses and imaginings, thoughts and emotions, needing constantly to distinguish between the true and the false.

I am a Quester: my life is my quest. I put everything into my quest, every moment, every thought, every ounce of power, and every resource at my command: required constantly to make the most of every situation.

I am a Quester: I quest towards a goal. Between me and my goal lie many paths, each with its own obstacles to bar my way, even still I will let nothing keep me from my goal, or from questing my quest. I will never yield, nor make any compromise: I will face death before surrender: suffer annihilation before submission, but always I seek to venture the path on which I will encounter the least disturbance.

I am a Quester: the ultimate judge of my quest. I quest only for myself: so that I might find satisfaction, peace, and happiness. I answer to, or change for no other power than myself. As time goes on, I may certainly change my quest, but only so that I may continue to move closer to my own and separate peace.

I am a Quester: I am me: inseparable for all eternity and infinity – time and space. I am bound to my quest forever, it is I, and I am it. As I live, I must quest. Onward I go, closer to my goal, nearer to my peace.

Forever questing as I must quest. I am a Quester.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
