Explore the value of Perseverance
George M. Moore, Jr.
Orison Swett Marden
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
I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit.
Sir Thomas Buxton
I am happy for who I am, and what I have come to be. I look forward to whatever else that may come with positivity.
Failure is no more a permanent condition than success! For even if you succeed, there’s still another test.
...there are persons who seem to have overcome obstacles and by character and perseverance to have risen to the top. But we have no record of the numbers of able persons who fall by the wayside, persons who, with enough encouragement and opportunity, might make great contributions.
