Explore the value of Perseverance
Determination and perseverance move the world; thinking that others will do it for you is a sure way to fail.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perseverance is a great element of success. If you knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, you do not change your decision to get there.
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.
Baron Manfred von Richthofen
Sir Winston Churchill
