No greater thing is created suddenly any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom then bear fruit then ripen.
Epictetus (c. AD 50 – 135) was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion.
