I am looking for a particular quotation that I believe comes from the desert fathers. I searched the Philokalia but didn't find it. I don't think it was from there anyway, but I looked.
In the story, the father asks a person with no goals to shoot an arrow into the desert. Since he has no target, it doesn't matter where he shoots. A person without a goal is like an archer without a target. Anyone know either where it came from or how I might search for it?
