Jacob August Riis

1849 - 1914

A Quote by Jacob August Riis

Look at the 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 will split in two and I know it was not the last blow that did it but all that had gone before.
