Motivational Sayings on Persistence



The force of the waves is in their persistence.
-- Denis Waitley

If you see a need, do not ask why doesn't somebody do something, ask why don't I do something. Hard work and persistence and initiative are still the non-magic carpets to success for most of us.
-- Marian Wright Edelman

Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure.
-- Edward Eggleston

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men of talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
-- Calvin Coolidge

One very important ingredient of success is a good, wide- awake, persistent enemy.
-- Frank B. Shutts

First, forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you, whether you're inspired or not...Habit is persistence in practice.
-- Octavia Butler

Every little bit helps. Every little quit hurts.
-- Unknown Author

Progress results from persistence with purpose.
-- Frank Tyger
