Most marvelous of all it was to see that perfection is not the end of energy, nor peace the end of venturing. Both are beginnings, and not of stagnation or weariness, but of some inconceivable ardor of passion that draws out the powers to their highest, and lengthens the longings of the heart beyond the last limitation of knowledge.
They acknowledge no limitation; they are prolonged to infinity; time has no meaning for them, now is forever, here is everywhere. Go nowhere, make no more effort, wait, here all things come to you, enter into you, are one with you."
Edith Pargeter, The Heaven Tree.
