A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Rome Was Not Built In A Day’.
This is quite a famous idiom that all of us here must have heard at some point in our life. What exactly does this mean?
Wikipedia defines it as follows: “Rome wasn’t built in a day” is an adage attesting to the need for time to create great things. It is the usual English translation of a medieval French phrase, Rome ne fu[t] pas faite toute en un jour, from the collection Li Proverbe au Vilain, published around 1190.”
Collins dictionary offers a more simple definition of the phrase: “said to mean that it takes a long time to do a job or task properly, and you should not rush it or expect to do it quickly.”
Thus, great things take time. Don’t rush what you want and let the process happen!
