Perseverance Quotes

Even the most talented person gets nowhere without discipline and persistence. Persistence is the quality that puts people of average talent ahead of those who are geniuses but have accomplished nothing. Every single repeater has persistence. It's not failing the bar exam that defines what kind of person you are or what kind of lawyer you will become. What does define those things is whether or not you will give up or get lazy in the face of that failure. Consider printing this post and taping it to your wall.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with 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. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race."
Calvin Coolidge

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." Winston Churchill

"Good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do." Napoleon Hill

"Defeat is simply a signal to press onward." Helen Keller

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