On Wandering -- Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/914412.html

[Y]ou were too alert to the figurative possibilities of words not to see the phrase [angle if repose] as descriptive of human as welll as detrial rest.  As you said, it was too good for mere dirt; you tried to apply it to your own wandering and uneasy life... I wonder if you ever reached it.
