live, horse, and you will get grass

If you persist through difficulty, you will eventually reap benefits. The phrase of encouragement comes from a story of a farmer who plants grass for his horse and tells the horse to live until the grass has time to grow. Yeah, but if your business can survive this recession, all of your hard work will pay off. As the saying goes, "Live, horse and you will get grass."
