Diligence and Perseverance


Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

Samuel Johnson

Work and discipline


There is no magic wand that can resolve our problems. The solution rests with our work and discipline.

Jose Eduardo dos Santos

You’ve got to start


The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.

Amelia Earhart

Put in the work


Show up, show up, show up, and after a while the muse shows up, too.

Isabel Allende

Stay in the game


Champions keep playing until they get it right.

Billie Jean King

Work for your goals


Never hope for it more than you work for it.

Rita Mae Brown

Be persistent!


Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothign os more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genuis 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

Take your time


There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Josiah Gilbert Holland

Steady progress


Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.

Bill Gates


Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.

Joseph Joubert
