Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Jean Jacques Rousseau

For this week’s installment of Writer’s Quote Wednesday, I take my inspiration from Jean Jacques Rousseau:


There’s an ancient proverb that says that patience can cook a stone. What this means is that the impossible is possible with patience. You cannot literally melt a stone down into a cooking pot unless you intend on waiting for a very very VERY long time. Waiting, it is the bitter taste of patience. Not only is it sometimes stressful to have to wait, but to remain diligent while you wait is often our greatest challenge. Writing and producing takes a lot of patience but people who possess persistence are capable of achieving great things because they took their time preparing for it. Sometimes we get an idea in our head that is not meant to be acted upon right now. Sometimes these ideas are just there until it is time for them to bloom into that sweet reward that comes from hard work. Creativity then is also wrapped up in patience because waiting for the right time often nourishes our ideas; helps to organize them into realistic goals.

  1. I really like this quote. Patience is hard though! I am finding out that I can be patient. All it takes is some deep breaths and a willingness to slow down and take my time. Thank you for sharing such a great quote! ❤

    1. Patience is hard! It’s one of those things that I find myself constantly working on. The good thing however is that once I’ve mastered patience I find it very refreshing and stuff is always so much better after I waited lol.
