Explore the value of Perseverance
M. Russell Ballard
George A. Custer
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

If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins- not through strength but by perseverance.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
