Isn't it strange that princes and kings,
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
And common people like you and me
Are builders of eternity.

A shapeless mass
A book of rules
And each must make as time flows
A stumbling block or stepping stone.
(Sharp : an unknown poet)

Every day you make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
(Sir Winston Churchill)
