There is an expression: "Constant dropping wears away a stone". This is a line from a poem of ancient Greek poet Herila. The European culture has got it thanks to Roman poet Ovid. In his "Epistles from Pontus" it is said: "A drop hollows the stone". In the collection of expressions of ancient authors, that was compiled in the XV century by Byzantine scholar Michael Apostol, this expression is given in the following form: "A drop that is continuously falling, gouges a rock". In this form this expression occurs in ecclesiastical works of writers Gregory the Theologian and John of Damascus.
