On Perseverance

Perseverance is, at times, difficult to muster, but knowing that others have found the intestinal fortitude to continue on inspires me. It helps me to be a better version of who I am.

“It’s amazing what you’ll endure when you must.” – Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“If you don’t make a total commitment to whatever you’re doing, then you start looking to bail out the first time the boat starts leaking. It’s tough enough getting that boat to shore with everybody rowing, let alone when some guy stands up and starts putting his life jacket on.” – Lou Holtz

“Think you can, think you can’t; either way, you’ll be right.” – Henry Ford

“Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.” – Babe Ruth

“Through hard work, perseverance, and a faith in God, you can live your dreams.” – Ben Carson

“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” – Newt Gingrich

“Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.” – Samuel Johnson

“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 must be attained.” – Marie Curie

“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races, one after the other.” – Walter Elliott
