Persistence quotes and quotations

Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Benjamin Franklin

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.
W. C. Fields

If you're going through hell, keep going.
Winston Churchill

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
Isaac Asimov

The secret of success is constancy to purpose.
Benjamin Disraeli

I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas Alva Edison

What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.
Victor Frankl

That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Dale Carnegie

We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are.
Tobias Wolff

The heights by great men reached and kept / Were not attained by sudden flight, / But they, while their companions slept, / Were toiling upward in the night.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Thomas Alva Edison

Arriving at one point is the starting point to another.
John Dewey

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

Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world.
Jane Addams

Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.
Sophia Loren

You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
Marian Wright Edelman

Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.
Mary Kay Ash

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas Alva Edison

Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.
Louis Pasteur

Whoever said anybody has a right to give up?
Marian Wright Edelman

E. M. Forster never gets any further than warming the teapot. He's a rare fine hand at that. Feel this teapot. Is it not beautifully warm? Yes, but there ain't going to be no tea.
Katherine Mansfield

In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. That the weak overcomes the strong, that the hard gives way to the gentle -- this everyone knows. Yet no one asks accordingly.
Lao-Tse

You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation.
Marian Wright Edelman

Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
Ovid

The best way out is always through.
Robert Frost
