Persevere

The fisher who draws in his net too soon
Won’t have any fish to sell
The child who shuts up his book too soon
Won’t learn any lessons well
If you would have your learning stay
Be patient – don’t learn too fast
The man who travels a mile each day
May get round the world at last

Take a look at the rhymes from McGuffey’s Reader, what lessons do you draw from this? Be patient, endure and persevere. Good things come to those who wait.
