„Is this the light at the end of the tunnel
Is this the end, the end of all my trouble
Is this the light at the end of the tunnel
Or just the light of another oncoming train.“

„The excellence of a thing is the end for which it was made; as of a star to give light, and of a plant to be fruitful.“

—  Thomas Watson English nonconformist preacher and author 1616 - 1686

from The Lord's Prayer.
Contexto: The excellence of a thing is the end for which it was made; as of a star to give light, and of a plant to be fruitful. So the excellence of a Christian is to answer the end of his creation, which is to hallow God’s name, and live to that God by whom he lives.
