Therefore, you must thank God that He has bestowed upon you the blessing of life and existence in the human kingdom.
Strive diligently to acquire virtues befitting your degree and station.
Be as lights of the world which cannot be hid and which have no setting in horizons of darkness.
Ascend to the zenith of an existence which is never beclouded by the fears and forebodings of nonexistence.
~ ‘Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, pp. 89-90
