perseverance

A Quote by Sydney J. Harris on perseverance and talent

Perseverance is the most overrated of traits, if it is unaccompanied by talent; beating your head against a wall is more likely to produce a concussion in the head than a hole in the wall.

Sydney J. Harris (1917 - 1986)

A Quote by Maltbie Davenport Babcock on decisions, failure, genius, language, learning, magic, mistakes, music, patience, perseverance, proverbs, reading, study, success, thinking, and time

One of the commonest mistakes and one of the costliest is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic - something or other which we do not possess. Success is generally due to holding on, and failure to letting go. You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course of reading, train yourself physically. Will it be success or failure? It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word "decide" contains. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success. Remember the Chinese proverb, "With time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes satin.
