At the beginning of every semester, I start Chapel with a quote from Martin Luther that expresses his belief that the real strength and treasure of a nation is its people of education, enlightenment, and character. This year, trying to find the original document from which this quote was taken, I discovered the following quote, also from Luther:
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 yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road.
