Thought of the Day: On Excellence

"Excellece then is not a act but a habit."
-Aristotle

"... Those who strive for excellence are those who have accustomed themselves to going beyond the bounds of what is normally considered within the realms of human endurance."
-Abdu'l-Baha

i've got like the germ of an idea for a baha'i site in my mind - and have been trying to think of a good name for it - i spent ages on Ocean, randomly reading the Writings, and it struck me that one word that was often repeated (Apart from the cord we always read about in prayers :) is the word "strive". It's just such a big part of being a Baha'i, we're constantly striving! And that quote you have there really says it all.

i'm really enjoying your blog ,eheh. sorry for all the comments but it's been great reading for tonight. I'm glad you're writing :)

prems, I think "strive" is an AMAZING name for a Baha'i mag.
