    石の上にも三年 - Ishi no ue nimo san-nen - Three years on a stone.

    This is a Japanese proverb about being patient and persevering. The meaning of this is that even the coldest stone will warm eventually, if you sit on it long enough.

    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

    "Practice makes permanent"
    From my high school band director, Marty Worthington.
    You can practice until it's 'perfect' but if you practice it wrong then you'll be doing it 'perfectly wrong'.

    You get what you need

    Just finished watching the first season of "Genius" by Nat Geo and i love some of Einstein's quotes:

    - "When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute — and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity."

    - "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."

    If you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Also, a Filipino proverb for you all:

    "Kung ayaw, may dahilan. Kung gusto, may paraan."

    Roughly translates to:

    "If you don't want it, there's a reason. If you want it, there's a way."

    Oh hey, that’s somewhat similar to a local quote in Malaysia :

    “Hendak seribu daya, tak hendak seribu dalih”


    Translated, it (roughly) reads :

    “There’s a thousand ways to want something, and a thousand to not.”
