Persistence

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. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. Persistence, determination and hard work make the difference. -- Calvin Coolidge

In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. That the weak overcomes the strong, that the hard gives way to the gentle -- this everyone knows. Yet no one asks accordingly. -- Lao-Tse

The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling. -- Lucretius

Paralyze resistance with persistence. -- Woody Hayes

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down. -- Charles Kettering

Consider the postage stamp, my son. It secures success through its ability to stick to one thing till it gets there. -- Josh Billings
