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.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, ”Here comes number seventy-one!”
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don't know where you're aiming, you don't have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.
Mary Kay Ash
Robert J. Wright
Athletes must dig down deep in the heat of competition to win; people must dig down deep in the game of life to succeed. The deeper we dig, the higher we soar.
Thomas Tommy Lasorda
No matter how much you plan, it is tenacity, unyielding desire to succeed, and the ability to cope with change that will eventually prevail.

Cindy, a 50 year old woman, never learned to read, never got a high school diploma. She is committed to getting her GED. I tutor her in reading/writing and find she always does more homework than I've assigned. She is working hard to fulfill her goal and I am amazed at how hard she's working toward it.

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.
