Nothing Can Resist Persistence


Nothing is softer or more flexible than water,
yet nothing can resist it.
- Lao Tzu


Choose your battles wisely.
While your core principles and your life goals are important,
most of what you let upset you is not worth an argument or lost sleep.
Take Lao Tzu's advice and become softer and more flexible.

When you encounter difficulties and contradictions,
do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.
- Saint Francis de Sales

The key to everything is patience.
You get the chicken by hatching the egg,
not by smashing it open.
- Arnold H. Glasgow

Patience can't be acquired overnight.
It is just like building up a muscle.
Every day you need to work on it.
- Eknath Easwaran

Patience, persistence, and perseverance.
A little more each day, a little better each day.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
