Perseverance Quotes


Being committed to hard work, patience and being able to try and try again when at first you don’t succeed are highly desirable traits. They are also the very foundation of perseverance. Perseverance quotes show us the way to reach our goals, showing us that it isn’t the sprinter who wins a distance race, but the persistent competitor who soldiers on calmly, consistently and without complaint. Perseverance quotes give us the inspiration and fortitude to fight the difficult fight, never giving up, even when others have. Reference.com Definition of Perseverance
