Beginning is easy – continuing hard.
Persist as resolutely as you persist in eating.
No man drowns if he perseveres in praying to God; and can swim.
Manana is often the busiest day of the week.
Without perseverance talent is a barren bed.
Advantage comes not from the spectacular or the technical. Advantage comes from a persistent seeking of the mundane edge.
Only those who push too far, see how far they can go.
If you want a crop for one year, grow millet. If you want a crop for ten years, grow a tree. If you want a crop for a hundred years, grow men.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
If you get up one time more than you fall you will make it through.
