By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
—Charles Haddon Spurgeon
I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will; and the other from a strong won't.
—Henry Ward Beecher
You have to keep plugging away. We are all growing. There is no shortcut. You have to put time into it to build an audience
If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother and hope your guardian genius.
Victory belongs to the most persevering.
Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
