You can never quit. Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
Dorothy: If we walk far enough, we shall sometime come to someplace.
Less good from genius we may find Than that from perseverance flowing; So have good grist at hand to grind, And keep the mill a-going.
Perseverance merits neither blame nor praise; it is only the duration of our inclinations and sentiments, which we can neither create nor extinguish.
Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labour and to wait.

The greatest results in life are usually attained by simple means and the exercise of ordinary qualities. These may for the most part be summed up in these two – commonsense and perseverance.
No plain not followed by a slope. No going not followed by a return. He who remains persevering in danger is without blame. Do not complain about this truth; Enjoy the good fortune you still possess.
No rock so hard but a little wave may beat admission in a thousand years.
An enterprise, when fairly once begun, should not be left till all that ought is won.
