Principle 14: Persistence

John D. Rockefeller said, "I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature." Persistence is an inner resource - it comes only from your heart and must be cultivated, encouraged, and strengthened daily to have its full effect.

Harriet Beecher Stowe said, "When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, until it seems that you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." 

Principle 14: Persistence

President Calvin Coolidge wrote, "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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."

Principle 14: Persistence

"Most of us don't give up in dramatic ways - instead, we usually find quiet, subtle ways to turn away from our dreams of greatness, to settle for a life of convenience and mediocrity. Sometimes, our compromise is so subtle that even we don't realize that we lost the zeal for greatness that once captured our imaginations. When this occurs, we stop the faithful execution of the activities, discipline, and perseverance necessary to bring our dreams into reality."
