After analytical research and practice — Life can only be lived in the present. We can remember and imagine life in the past and the future, but we can only live life in the present. The common man is at a disadvantage, having to bear both the burden of maintaining society, and his own Self-awareness within society.

My heart’s upmost desire is to love the LORD our God with all of my heart, soul, and mind and to love my neighbor as myself. My goal is to put that desire into action through service in ministry.

Paton continually mentioned the importance of faith in this book and what it meant to each of the characters present. One of the main ideas in this novel was the journey Kumalo took in order to overcome the challenges he had faced. The obstacles he was presented with included finding his daughter and his son.
