Explore the value of Perseverance
Sir Thomas Buxton
George A. Custer
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
