Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14, ESV)
The most important thing in your life is not what you do; it’s who you become.
— Dallas Willard

Becoming is better than being. — Carol Dweck
