Perseverance Quotes


If you are going through hell, keep going.

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.

It always seems impossible until it's done.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the will which says to them: 'Hold on!'
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their endings.

Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings.

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

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.

I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.

Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.

Just because you fail once doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything.

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.

You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.

The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud --- the obstacles of life and its suffering. ... The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. ... Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one.

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

When things go wrong, don't go with them.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.

Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.

It's not how we fall. It's how we get back up again.

I wish to weep
but sorrow is
stupid.
I wish to believe
but belief is a
graveyard.

Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength.

Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.

Life is Tremendous

Charles Jones

Life is Tremendous

My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results... but it is the effort that's heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.

We’re all going to keep fighting, Harry. You know that?

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don't just give up.

That's one of the remarkable things about life. It's never so bad that it can't get worse.

What's the bravest thing you ever did?

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

Certain motherfuckers think they can fuck with my shit, but you can't kill the Rooster. You might can fuck him up some times, but, bitch, nobody kills the motherfucking Rooster. You know what I'm saying?

...A man can only stumble for so long before he either falls or stands up straight.

The Well of Ascension

Brandon Sanderson

The Well of Ascension

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with?

A bend in the road is not the end of the road…Unless you fail to make the turn.

I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

NEVER GIVE UP
No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

Women are never so strong as after their defeat.
