Proverb – Australia

Good, better, Best

Never let it rest

‘Till the good is better

and the better best.

My Aunt always said this to her own children and me when we were little kids. I have always thought it carried a good message, but I rarely use it around anyone except family. I like the way it advocates active improvement. I think it is very true that if you aren’t actively improving, then you are worsening yourself.  I think this is something I might one day say to my children. The poem conveys are hardworking attitude that is a benefit to anyone.
