“Having patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.”
Patience is a virtue or so they say. Persian poet Saadi says in today’s quote that when we have patience is realizing that all things are difficult at first before the become easy. Remember back to all of the things you didn’t know how to do when you were little such as ride your bike, tie your shoe or read. It took a lot of time and dedication towards improving and mastering those challenges. However the driving force through it all was the patience we had in achieving those things no matter how long it took.
