Persistence

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.

Henry Knox

Perseverance accomplished what at first seemed impossible.

Edgar Albert Guest

The joy of life is living it, or so it seems to me;
In finding shackles on your wrists, then struggling till you’re free;
In seeing wrongs and righting them, in dreaming splendid dreams,
Then toiling till the vision is as real as moving streams.
The happiest mortal on the earth is he who ends his day
By leaving better than he found to bloom along the way.
Were all things perfect here there would be naught for man to do;
If what is old were good enough we’d never need the new.
The only happy time of rest is that which follows strife
And sees some contribution made unto the joy of life.
And he who has oppression felt and conquered it is he
Who really knows the happiness and peace of being free.
The miseries of earth are here and with them all must cope.
Who seeks for joy, through hedges thick of care and pain must grope.
Through disappointment man must go to value pleasure’s thrill;
To really know the joy of health a man must first be ill.
The wrongs are here for man to right, and happiness is had
By striving to supplant with good the evil and the bad.
The joy of life is living it and doing things of worth,
In making bright and fruitful all the barren spots of earth.
In facing odds and mastering them and rising from defeat,
And making true what once was false, and what was bitter, sweet.
For only he knows perfect joy whose little bit of soil
Is richer ground than what it was when he began to toil.

Norton Juster

So many things are possible just as long as you don’t know they’re impossible.

Louis Pasteur

Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.

Napoleon Hill

A quitter never wins-and-a winner never quits.

R. Collier

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Author Unknown

Do all the good you can, to all the people you can, in all the ways you can, for as long as you can.

Wendelin Van Draamen

You haven’t failed until you quit. If you don’t quit, you’ll reach success somewhere down the line. Hard work and persistence do pay off.

Michael Jordan

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Vince Lombardi

It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.

Thomas Edison

Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.

Robert Herjavec

Tough times never last; tough people always do.

Calvin Coolidge

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
