A rolling stone gathers no mass

A stone which lies in the same place for a long time collects mass, while a stone which isalways rolling from one place to another does not. In same the way, a man who is a 'rolling stone' i.e.,who is constantly changing his occupations and pursuits and does not settle down long to any particular work, achieves little or no success in life. One who is consantly chopping and changing will never become wealthy. He is merely dissipating his energies and will get no where. He must be careful in choosing a proffession and stick to that proffession if he wants to achieve success. The proverb is applicable to studies too. A student who aims to become a scholar must stick to one subject, the student who chooses physics and then takes up mathematics and tiring of that, goes in for chemistry and drops this again for medicine, will be " jack of all trades and master of none".

If we don't continue to grow throughout our lives, we tend to rot away as easily as any other thing on earth. We must move through life, spiritually, emotionally, educationally, and in terms of human relationships, or we simply stagnate and die.
