: : I recently came across the phrase "all things yield to diligence" as a flyer in my credit card statement. I do not doubt the validity of this, but does it mean they really care? Anyone know where this came from?

: "Everything yields to diligence" is attributed to the Greek playwright Antiphanes.

And, no, they don't really care - they just want the money back. Pamela
