Explore the value of Perseverance
Sir Winston Churchill
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
Failure after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striving good enough to be called a failure.
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
Baron Manfred von Richthofen
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.
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.
