"Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
~ John Quincy Adams, diplomat, politician, writer and 6th president of the U.S. (1767-1848)
I'm a new father and definitely in no hurry to see my daughter grow up. I just hope I can teach her the two hardest values I've learned in life (didn't quite set in when I was a kid), which are patience and perseverance. My grandmother used to make me sing that old song "Have patience... don't be in such a hurry." Know it?
