"We cannot remove the conditions under which our work is to be done, but we can transform them. They are the elements out of which we must build the temples wherein we serve. In one sense God gives nothing, while in another He gives all things. He requires us, that is, to make His Gifts our own, by using the power which He inspires. Not all at once, and not as we should have expected, and not without many delays, does that which indeed is ours become ours."
