Do you ever feel like giving up?
We all need support and encouragement in our lives. There may be many times when you feel like giving up – when you begin to experience self-doubt, when you wonder if your goal is worth the effort. The next time that happens, remember these words:
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, at whatever cost, must be attained.
Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend.
In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm; in the real world, all rests on perseverance.
–Johann von Goethe
The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. –Henry Ward Beecher
By perseverance the snail reached the Ark. –Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. –Jacob A. Riis
