"This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness,
not health but healing,
not being but becoming,
not rest but exercise.
We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it.
The process is not finished, but is going on.
This is not the end, but it is the road.
All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified."
