“In our individual and collective quest for perfection, it is not the sprinter, the saint whose spiritually is only momentarily incandescent, who wins the eternal prize. Like running a marathon, to finish, to endure to the end is to win. Winning itself must, of course, be viewed from the eternal perspective. All too often we yearn for the praise and prize of being first rather than the mush more important process of completing the task itself.”- Anne G Osborn, “The Joy of perspective”, JOY
