To Improve Self - Perseverance and Courage to Handle Difficulties

"Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air." 
*-- John Quincy Adams (1767 - 1848)

"The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself." 
*-- Anna Quindlen (1953 - )

"Enthusiasm finds the opportunities, and energy makes the most of them."
*-- Henry Hoskins

"Just as friction between certain types of rocks produces sparks of light, so it is the friction of our individualities
rubbing against each other that illuminates who we really are."
*-- Rev. Rowland C. Croucher

"Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit."
*-- Conrad Hilton
