Persistence Quotes, Mostly.


Robert Kraft: “Perseverance is how most things get done and deals get made, because eventually, most of the world will just give up.”

Arnold Palmer: “A man might be walking around lucky, and not know it unless he tries.”

Michael Jordan: “Success isn't something you chase. It is something you have to put forth the effort for constantly; then maybe it'll come when you least expect it. Most people don't understand that.”

Calvin Coolidge: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

James J. Corbett, Heavyweight Boxer: “Fight on more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight on more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight on more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight on more round – remember that the man who always fight on more round is never whipped.”

Junko Tabei, first female to climb Mount Everest in 1975: “Technique and ability alone do not get you to the top; it is willpower that is the most important – it rises in your heart.”

And a different type of quote:

Mark Twain: “Do something every day that you don't want to do. This is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.”
