12



The will to persevere in the face of obstacles is often the difference between success and failure.
-- Unknown Author

With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
-- Thomas E. Buxton

I realized early on that success was tied to not giving up. Most people in this business gave up and went on to other things. If you simply didn't give up, you would outlast the people who came in on the bus with you.
-- Harrison Ford

Success is not purchased at any one time, but on the installment plan.
-- Unknown Author

Progress results from persistence with purpose.
-- Frank Tyger

The end is the crown of any work.
-- Russian Proverb

Losers quit when they are tired. Winners quit when they have won.
-- Unknown Author

Many men fail because they quit too soon. They lose faith when the signs are against them. They do not have the courage to hold on, to keep fighting in spite of that which seems insurmountable. If more of us would strike out and attempt the "impossible," we very soon would find the truth of that old saw that nothing is impossible...Abolish fear and you can accomplish anything you wish.
-- C. E. Welch

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
-- John Quincy Adams

If you weather the storm, you'll reach the port.

-- Lou Holtz

There is no mistake so great as the mistake of not going on.

Heroism consists of hanging on one minute longer.

It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.
-- Babe Ruth

Sometimes love has its ups and downs. Mostly though, there are more ups than downs and true love will weather any storm.
-- K. Lytestone

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
-- John Quincy Adams

Fall down seven times, get up eight.
-- Japanese Proverb

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
-- William Feather

The temptation when the path to success gets too bumpy is to leap back into the comfort zone. Don't. Keep pushing forward, always forward. The comfort zone is the land of dreams and wishes. Success is the land of results, where all those dreams come true.
-- Mark Burnett

Success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 percent of your work, which results from the 99 percent that is called failure.
-- Soichiro Honda

Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.
-- Malcolm Forbes

He that can't endure the bad will not live to see the good.
-- Yiddish Proverb

The first part of success is "Get-to-it-iveness"; the second part of success is "Stick-to-it-iveness."
-- Orison Swett Marden

I play to win even when common sense should tell me that I no longer have a chance. Even when I have been playing at my worst, or when all the breaks have been going against me, I approach each new day, each new hole, as a glorious opportunity to get going again.
-- Arnold Palmer

Never confuse a single mistake with a final mistake.
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald
