1935: Birth of former Universal House of Justice member Glenford E. Mitchell
"... Suffering, of one kind or another, seems to be the portion of man in this world. Even the Beloved ones, the Prophets of God, have never been exempt from the ills that are to be found in our world; poverty, disease, bereavement, -they seem to be part of the polish God employs to make us finer, and enable us to reflect more of His attributes! No doubt in the future, when the spiritualized, a vast amount of our present ills and problems will be remedied. We who toil now are paving the way for a far better world, and this knowledge must uphold and strengthen us through every trial."
(From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, March 3, 1943) (Compilations, Lights of Guidance, p. 603)
1955 - It is an indefinite journey
As we almost never attain any spiritual goal without seeing the next goal we must attain still beyond our reach, he urges you, who have come so far already on the path of spirituality, not to fret about the distance you still have to cover! It is an indefinite journey, and, no doubt in the next world the soul is privileged to draw closer to God than is possible when bound on this physical plane.
(Shoghi Effendi, The Unfolding Destiny of the British Baha'i Community, p. 461)

(From a previously untranslated Tablet) (Compilations, The Individual and Teaching - Raising the Divine Call, p. viii)
