Fav Quote Friday: Thoughts On Persistance, Patience & Perseverance


“When nothing seems to help,

 I go look at a stonecutter,

hammering away at his rock

 perhaps a hundred times,

 without as much as a crack showing in it.

Yet at the hundred and first blow

it will split in two,

and I know

it was not that blow that did it,

but all that had gone before.”
