The tendency to persevere, to persist in spite of hindrances, discouragements and impossibilities – it is this that distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. A man of strong will and perseverance never meets with failures, He attains success in all his undertakings.
When you embark on a project you should not leave it till you attain complete success. Pursue it resolutely. A man of diligence, vigilance and strong resolution grows into a genius.
The nerve that never relaxes, the eye that never blenches, the thought that never wanders – these are the masters of victory. Victory belongs to those who persevere. Perseverance gives power to weakness and opens the door of poverty to the wealth of the whole world. With this quality great difficulties come to an end.
