Items of Interest: Step By Step

by Benjamin Domenech on February 18, 2009

It is better to begin from one’s feeble state and end up strong, to progress from small things to larger, than to set your heart from the very first on the perfect way of life, then only to abandon it later – or to keep it solely out of habit, because of what others think – in which case all this labor will be in vain. It is the same with people who travel: if they tire themselves out on the very first day by rushing along, they will end up wasting many days as a result of sickness. But if they start out walking at a gentle pace until they are accustomed to walking, in the end they will not get tired, even though they walk great distances.
