The patient persistence of a water drop

Never stop trying, not even for a day. For however small your efforts may be, the secret to success lies in persistence and perseverance.

If you pause you may even risk losing what you have already acquired. For matter possesses an immense power of resistance, of inertia. True success does not depend on making intense, exceptional efforts for a few moments but on the constant repetition of small, daily endeavours. Dripping water hollows out a stone. And yet, water is soft and stone is so hard!
