Many people itch for what they want, but they won't scratch for it.
Don't be critical of your mate's faults. It was those very defects that kept him or her from getting a better mate.
Remember, some of us learn from other people's mistakes and the rest of us have to be the other people.
Anyone can be tenacious if he'll just hang in there long enough.
