Today: Wait, hold your inner strength, and peace is assured – from the I Ching

Wait, hold your inner strength, and peace is assured.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching
Even in the midst of danger there come intervals of peace when things go relatively well. If we possess enough inner strength, we shall take advantage of these intervals to fortify ourselves for renewed struggle. We must know how to enjoy the moment without being deflected from the goal, for perseverance is needed to remain victorious.
This is true in public life as well; it is not possible to achieve everything all at once. The height of wisdom is to allow people enough recreation to quicken pleasure in their work till the task is completed. ”
