No true effort is in vain. Look at the fields over there. The grain sown therein has to remain in the earth for a certain time, then it sprouts, and in due time yields hundreds of its kind. The same is the case with every effort in a good cause.

Badshah Khan in Nonviolent Soldier of Islam by Eknath Easwaran

 

To Practice This Thought:
Sow some grain for a good cause, and don't concern yourself with results.
