If you speak Farsi, can you translate this?

Many decades ago, I heard a verse in Farsi which translated to something like this:

If you want to write beautiful...
Keep writing, keep writing, keep writing.

The word for writing --as I remember it-- was Navees.

Does anyone in this world know what the original verse was?

It seems that it is not a famous verse, I could not find it in internet,
write: benevees
you write: tow (or english thou) mineveesi
