"Omelets are not made without breaking eggs" François de Charette. An idiom used to emphasize that most things worth having come at a cost. A similar quote "Laws are like sausage, it's better not to see them made" Otto Von Bismarck. In other words, we like to see the results but don't really want to see the process that renders those results. And finally, "You can't have your cake and eat it too" Proverb. This one I don't agree with. You can have both ... merely bake two cakes and eat one and save the other. Besides food, what do these three common phrases have in common? Success is not easy, it comes with sacrifice and struggle, and it requires a lot more effort and intention than many people are willing to give. And that is why success "tastes" so good when we achieve it.
