Try, Try Again

In the famous Aesop fable, The Crow and The Pitcher, we are told that where there’s a will accompanied by practical intelligence, there’s a way.

Once there was a thirsty crow. She had flown a long way looking for water to drink.
Suddenly she saw a pitcher. She flew down and saw it held a little water, but it was so low in the pitcher that she cold not reach it.

“But I must have that water,” she cried. “I am too weary to fly farther. What shall I do?
I’ll tip the pitcher over.”

She beat it with her wings, but it was too heavy. She could not move it.

Then she thought a while. “I know now! I will break it! Then I will drink the water as it pours out. How good it will taste.”

With beak and claws and wings she threw herself against the pitcher. But it was too strong.

The poor crow stopped to rest. “What shall I do now? I cannot die of thirst with water so close by. There must be a way, if I only had wit enough to find it out.”

After a while the crow had a bright idea. There were many small stones lying about. She picked them up one by one and dropped them into the pitcher. Slowly the water rose, till at last she could drink it. How food it tasted!

“There is always a way out of hard places,” said the crow, “if only we have the wit to find it.”

”Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Perseverance

 
Perseverance   



“Try, Try Again
‘Tis a lesson you should heed,
Try, try again;
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try, try again;
Then your courage should appear,
For, if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear,
Try, Try again.

Once or twice though you should fail,
Try, try again;
If you would at last prevail,
Try, try again;
If we strive, ’tis no disgrace
Though we do not win the race;
What should you do in the case?
Try, try again.

Time will bring you your reward,
Try, try again.
All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, should not you?
Only keep this rule in view;
Try, try again.
