"When nothing seems to help,

I go and look at a stone-cutter hammering away
at his rock perhaps a hundred times

without as much as a crack showing in it.

Yet at the hundred and first blow it would split in two,

and I know it was not that blow that did it,

but all that had gone before together."

-Jacob A. Riis, journalist and social reformer (1849-1914)
