    a few connotations of "thrive"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to revise the following sentence?

    Diligence and humility is the way to thrive in the riches of the understanding, as well as in gold.

    thrive = make steady progress; be at the high point in one's career or reach a high point in historical significance or importance; to grasp for one's self, to prosper by industry, economy, and good management of property, to increase in goods and estate; as, a farmer thrives by good husbandry.

    O son, why sit we here, each other viewing idly, while Satan, our great author, thrives?

    thrive = to prosper in any business; to have increase or success

    The country is thriving.

    thrive = flourish, bloom, blossom,

    I throve on hard work.

    He throve on trade.

    He thrives on other people's misfortunes.

    thrive = grow, profit, prosper, succeed

    Children thrive in fresh air.

    Cattle thrive in rich pastures.

    Failure to thrive (FTT) is a medical term which denotes poor weight gain and physical growth failure over an extended period of time.

    thrive = develop

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
