I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.
Nothing in the 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 will always solve the problems of the human race.
What really distinguishes this generation in all countries from earlier generations...is its determination to act, its joy in action, the assurance of being able to change things by one's own efforts.
Hooshang N. Akhtar
You've got to get up every morning with determination if you're going to go to bed with satisfaction.
George Horace Lorimer
LIVE YOUR DREAMS
We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.
Sir Winston Churchill
Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.

Determination is the engine which drives perseverance. But the beginning of it all is commitment.
Yes I agree that determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what. However, this is the same as addiction. knowing when to yield is just as important as determination in my opinion. A strong mind can also be a mind that cannot change direction for the better when needed. The current of determination is good if not tainted with ignorance.

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
Mahesh, Chennai ,India
Determination is the act of not feeling sorry for oneself, because if we do then negative & destructive thinking & emotions will take control. Our Creator expects to less because we were created in his Image. Brooke has the determination but a strong will to succeed despite her problems, a great example to the rest of us.

Determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what obstacles are put in your path, a single person with a purpose and the determination to accomplish such a task is a force to be reckoned with, a force that once going, cannot easily be stopped.
