One for My Baby (Tony Parson)

Eat your cold porridge!

A Chinese expression which means working at something for so long that when you get home there is nothing left to eat but cold porridge. People sometimes give up comfort and pleasure for a greater good. They defer gratification for some distant goals/dreams. Eat your cold porridge now, so that you will have something better tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, or the day after that. Dreams require self-sacrification!
