FSF - Rome Wasn't Built in a Day

The last few weeks have been terribly busy with multiple trade shows and meetings. As such I wasn’t able to complete many Farm Saying Friday’s. The one I did When in Rome, was actually requested as Rome wasn’t built in a day. Sorry Paul!

 
ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY
 
Meaning: Important work takes time
 
Origin: This familiar saying was originally a French proverb, 'Rome was not made all in one day,' which was recorded in 'Li Proverbe au Vilain' (c. 1190). The English version did not appear until three centuries later, when it was included first in Richard Taverner's translation of 'Erasmus' Adages' as 'Rome was not buylt in one day’.
