Rome was not Built in a Day-Amplification

‘Rome was not built in a day’ is a much-used proverb. It is said to mean that every great deed needs a considerable amount of time to be accomplished.

The city of Rome, the capital of the great Roman Empire, is a  wonder of the civilized world. This great city, with its grand buildings and magnificent parks, was not built only in a year or two but was the result of constant effort over centuries. It took almost six hundred years and the hard labour of people to get completed. The history behind the creation of Rome is a history of formidable labour and patience. All the undertakings of permanent value require these two gifts- constant labour and patience.

This saying teaches us the lesson that no great work can be done without labour and patience. Nothing great can be accomplished in a trice. This is true of all great institutions political, social, educational, or religious. Each great movement must be gradual and cumulative to be permanent.  Small things can happen within a short span of time but great things need a long time.

For example, the Taj Mahal of  Agra, the Pyramid of Egypt, the Great Wall of China etc. took many years to be constructed.  England and America have achieved distinction in power and excellence by means of hard work through the ages. India had to struggle for over a century to get independence.

We must learn to labour and wait. We cannot climb up the mountains on a leap. Everything should be done step by step. Success can be achieved by those who do not mind failures but struggle constantly to the end.  0 0 0
