The most interesting thing about a postage stamp is the persistence with which it sticks to its job.

Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting.
What we do not see, what most of us never suspect of existing, is the silent but irresistible power which comes to the rescue of those who fight on in the face of discouragement.
Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
No man is ever whipped, until he quits -- in his own mind.
Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.
The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.
Every well built house started in the form of a definite purpose plus a definite plan in the nature of a set of blueprints.
Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.
When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.
