Ishvar: “Patience is needed for dreams to grow and bear fruit.”
Om: “Patience is good when you want to grow a beard.”
From A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
I think I’m more like Om. I DO dream, but I’m also pretty realistic about things. I’m not part of the ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’ school. There are way too many disappointed kids, big kids who haven’t grown up, who were told this only to find out it’s not always true. And now what? Do they think they were lied to? Do they think they are failures? I don’t know. Thoughts?
