Chapter 4, Page 29, Book 16

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence. 

Hal Borland

 April 29th - The Three P’s – Patience, Persistence, Perseverance

A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.

Elbert Hubbard

Nothing great is ever accomplished without persistence and patience because, in order to be successful, your dreams must translate into work. The people who succeed in life are the people who are willing to do what they don't feel like doing.   You have to do the tough thing instead of the fun thing, the right thing instead of the pleasurable thing.

In these days of bigger, better, faster, more, now, it can be very challenging to practice patience. If it seems that most everyone else around you has forgotten patience or just doesn’t care about it, then that’s a great time to practice it.

In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins- not through strength but by perseverance.

H. Jackson Brown

There is some profound wisdom to be found in the 3 P’s.

Patience always.

Persistence persistently.

Perseverance incessantly.

We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.

Helen Keller

That is so true about people doing what they might not necessarily want to do but in doing so, they accomplish the goals they have set out for themselves. I would imagine there are a lot of college students doing this extra thing, but realizing in the end the pay off will show their perseverance and their patience. Patience is indeed a lost art and I think its because sometimes things are so convenient and quick that we forget the days when we actually had to wait for something to cook in the oven, etc. I was griping to myself this morning because something was taking a moment longer to load on the computer. I had to remember that a few short years ago the Internet didn't even exist.

Love the three P's. I am nothing if not persistent. Helen Keller said it best.
