“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”
"The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart."
- Robert Green Ingersoll
“Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.”
