Improvement is a life long journey

None of us will become perfect in a day or a month or a year. We will not
accomplish it in a lifetime, but we can begin now, starting with our more
obvious weaknesses and gradually converting them to strengths. This quest may
be a long one; in fact, will be lifelong. It may be fraught with many mistakes,
with falling down and getting back up again. But we must not sell ourselves
short. We must make a little extra effort. Kneel before God in supplication. He
will comfort, sustain, and bless us.

– Gordon B. Hinckley
