Explore the value of Perseverance
Failure is no more a permanent condition than success! For even if you succeed, there’s still another test.
The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move.
Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little.
Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity. It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment.
There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.
Dr. Leo Buscaglia
Baron Manfred von Richthofen
Determination and perseverance move the world; thinking that others will do it for you is a sure way to fail.
I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.

Em um momento de seu ministério Ludmila Ferber sempre cantava sobre não desistirmos, tudo o que começa termina e enquanto isso lutamos até vencer. In a moment of your ministry Ludmila Ferber always sang about not giving up, everything begins and ends as it fought to win.
