A Quote by Anne Pitkin on blossoming, gardens, weeds, flowers, morning glory, and persistence

Think of this: the morning glory has been blossoming for so long without permission that in some gardens it is no longer censored.  What does that tell you?

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on living in the moment, persistence, and presence

The dream was always running ahead of one. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was a miracle.

A Quote by Seth Godin on vision and persistence

There's a myth that all you need to do is outline your vision and prove it's right—then, quite suddenly, people will line up and support you.

In fact, the opposite is true. Remarkable visions and genuine insight are always met with resistance. And when you start to make progress, your efforts are met with even more resistance. Products, services, career paths... whatever it is, the forces for mediocrity will align to stop you, forgiving no errors and never backing down until it's over.

If it were any other way, it would be easy. And if it were any other way, everyone would do it and your work would ultimately be devalued. The yin and yang are clear: without people pushing against your quest to do something worth talking about, it's unlikely it would be worth the journey. Persist.

A Quote by 302designs on persistence, succeed, heart, resist, and perseverance

Persistence Persistence Persistence. With the wind kissing my face and the ground supplying the grace / There is very little to impede the need. The need to succeed / Standing alone I discovered the reason for heart / For there stood the enemy. Wishing to stop me before I start / They will hold your ankles. Pull you down by the wrists / They will kick, bite, and push. They will-will resist / With little life left to see. Steady came my plea / For as long as I am me. I will-will persist

A Quote by Pierre Omidyar on accomplishments, persistence, passion, business, and success

When you look at the accomplishments of accomplished people and you say, "Boy, that must have been really hard," you know, when you look at something that looks hard, that was probably easy. And conversely, when you look at something that looks easy, that was probably hard. And so you're never going to know which is which until you actually go and do it. So just go and do it, try it, learn from it. You'll fail at some things, that's a learning experience that you need so that you can take that on to the next experience. And don't let people who you may respect and who you believe know what they're talking about, don't let them tell you it can't be done, because often they will tell you it can't be done, and it's just because they don't have the courage to try.
