Truth's Price

It is generally accepted without question, in all lines of human activity, that in order to secure anything worth while it is necessary that a price be paid. The price may be measured in terms of money, but more often it is expressed in terms of diligence, persistence, patience, devotion, consecration to material objects and purposes.

In their desperate effort to attain what they think will satisfy, mortals endeavor to apply these qualities in order to reach the specific goal which they think will give them supreme satisfaction. Too often they find their efforts inadequate to cope with the obstacles which seem to interfere with their progress; or, perhaps, having attained their goal, they still are dissatisfied, and continue to spend their time and effort in new directions. The price is paid without questioning, and they wish only that they had more to spend.
