"If you want your dream to be
Build it slow and surely.
Small beginnings, greater ends;
Heartfelt work grows purely.
If you want to live life free,
Take your time, go slowly.
Do few things, but do them well,
Simple joys are holy.
Day by day, stone by stone
Build your secret slowly.
Day by day, you’ll grow, too,
You’ll know Heaven’s glory."
Donovan, “Gentle Heart”
