"What could be heavier and more impenetrable than a rock, the densest of all forms? And yet some rocks undergo a change in their molecular structure, turn into crystals, and so become transparent to the light. Some carbons, under inconceivable heat and pressure, turn into diamonds, and some heavy minerals into other precious stones."

Everyone, everything has the opportunity to change. Even under the great pressures of life we may emerge as beautiful wonders of this world.
"Only when we are sick of our sickness shall we cease to be sick."
