Diligence: Definition

  • careful and persistent work or effort (Oxford Dictionaries)
  • interested and persevering application; devoted and painstaking effort to accomplish what is undertaken; assiduity in service (Webster's 1913 Dictionary)
  • conscientiousness in paying proper attention to a task; giving the degree of care required in a given situation (WordNet Dictionary)

 What Diligence Is

  • "Diligence is the mother of good luck" (Benjamin Franklin)
  • "Diligence is a great teacher." (Arabic Proverb)

 Diligence: Proverbs and Quotes

  • A diligent leader is more likely to have an obedient staff who follow him of their own free will (Han Yu, an essayist and poet from the Tang dynasty)
  • Diligence has its reward; play has no advantages. (Three-Character Classic)1
  • Heaven, in its motion, (gives the idea of) strength. The superior man, in accordance with this, nerves himself to ceaseless activity. (I Ching)2
  • "The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools." (Confucius)3
  • "Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance." (Samuel Johnson)
  • "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." "I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism, have brought me to my ideas." (Albert Einstein)
  • "What we ever hope to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence." (Samuel Johnson)
  • "Leisure is time for doing something useful; this leisure the diligent man will obtain, but the lazy man never" — Benjamin Franklin
  • "Patience and diligence, like faith, remove mountains." (William Penn)

 The heaven (the Nature) rewards the diligent.
