PersistencE Open TrackBack Weekend

As all my close friends and loved ones know, “persistence” is my utmost favorite quality in a person.

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.
Henry Ward Beecher

Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.

G.B. Shaw

There is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream.

Is there anything in Life, sweet friends,that you remained persistent enough to overcome, win, or hold on to?

Open Trackbacks all weekend long.

    Dang Angel, persistence is such a tough quality to master. Can’t you pick a new favorite? I vote you pick laziness. I’ve got that one down.

    Persistance is very important to acquire and obstinancy to let go of. I love the quote you put up!

    In my parents’ country (Greece) there was a “persistence” for 400 yrs during which Greeks persisted in the fight against the Turkish Ottaman occupation. They got their freedom (finally) in 1822.

    As a Canadian, me and my family persist in the battle to keep our country free and democratic. It may sound corny but it’s a noble effort IMHO.
