Points to Ponder #8

“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

A diamond is only made beautiful after being buried for hundreds of years as a lump of coal. Are you impatient with yourself? With others? With your lot in life? Do you admit defeat too easily? Or do you stay the course, fighting those battles again and again until you’ve finally won?
