People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.
Sir Winston Churchill
Claude M. Briston
Orison Swett Marden
Black Elk [Hehaka Sapa]
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.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

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.
