cultivating virtue

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 dy,
May get round the world at last.
