Drop upon drop collected will make a river. Rivers upon rivers collected will make a sea. – SA’DI
It almost reminds you of the old TV Commercial, “how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop?” My suggestion is don’t count!
If you know what you are after is worth it, don’t count how many drops it will take to get to your river nor your sea. Instead, take in everything along the journey!
