Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out.
Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.
In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Be like a postage stamp, stick to one thing until you get there.
Timing, perseverance, and 10 years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.
It’s not that I’m so smart , it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know… it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
