A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS

Moss gathers on a stone that is stationary but not on one that is always on the move. Similarly persons who are always changing from one occupation to another can never prosper. They simply waste their time and energy. They lose the power of serious application to any­thing. The result is failure in life. A person who sticks to one thing, inspite of initial difficulties, is sure to succeed in the end. He may fail once or twice or even repeatedly. But he continues the effort and prof­its by the experience gained. Success in one thing gives him greater confidence and enables him to win success in other things also. Of course, we must think wisely, before a piece of work is taken up. Once the choice is made we are to stick to it with patience, perseverance and firm determination.
