Goodness is a process of becoming, not of being.
What we do over and over again is what we become in the end.
- Joan Chittister, author, lecturer, and member of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie

"...every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself , or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow creatures, and with itself."

- C.S. Lewis
