“Inconstancy is the great disease of our age— agitation, restlessness.
This is manifested in many forms:
in seeking distraction and diversion,
in chasing exciting pleasure,
in pursuing recreation over solitude,
in being bored with oneself.”
–Herman Bavinck, Reformed Ethics: Created, Fallen, and Converted Humanity, Vol. 1 (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker, 2019), 1: 126.
