To find our way
In her book We Took to the Woods, We Took to the Woods (New York: HarperCollins, 1942) . Louise Dickinson Rich tells about her family's life deep in the woods of Maine. One day she set out from a neighbor's to return home. While it was some distance, she felt she knew the woods and could navigate easily, but her neighbor made sure had a compass and urged her to use it and trust it.
To her surprise, Mrs. Rich quickly became lost. When she looked at the compass, she was so amazed at its reading that she was sure it was broken. She was certain she was going in the right direction even though the compass disagreed with her reckoning. But her friend had urged her to remember, "The compass is always right." She writes that it took a concerted effort to resist being drawn in a direction different from what the compass told her. It was as though she were hypnotized. She finally refused to give in to the argument that the instrument was broken and that she would do better to rely on her personal sense of direction. She followed the compass and got home safe and sound.
