We never receive any
aquisition without paying
the correspondent price for it.
Simple facts of material life routine vividly
illustrate such a point.
Why should we expect to obtain understanding
advantages without the required labour?
Virtue cannot be hung on the sanctuary of conscience,
as an ornament on a wall.
It is necessary to renew our minds and purify our hearts.
We shall not acquire the patrimonies of immortality,
while heaping thoughts of the mortal scope.
We cannot renew ourselves in Christ,
persisting in the old fantasy traps of the transitory sphere.
In order to highten our own lives,
it is adamant to outwear many emotions,
trim uncountable personality rough edges,
readjust concepts and sistematically fight illusion.
