Default Learning patience from a diamond

This came my way today - I thought you might like to read this...


What we can learn about patience from a diamond

Trying and persevering--but failing--to see your goals realized can be frustrating. Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You''ve got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after many years as a lump of coal.



"Even if our efforts of attention seem for years to be producing no result, one day a light that is in exact proportion to them will flood the soul."

- Simone Weil
