67 Perseverance Quotes to Keep You Going

(By Marelisa)

In order to achieve your goals, you must cultivate perseverance and determination.  Here are 67 perseverance quotes for when you feel your determination wavering and you need some motivation in order to keep going:

1. “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” ~ Calvin Coolidge

2. “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins- not through strength but by perseverance.” ~ H. Jackson Brown

3. “If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. “Here comes number seventy-one!” ~ Richard M. Devos

4. “Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

5. “The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.” ~ Author Unknown

6. When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.” ~ Author Unknown

7. “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.” ~ Maltbie Davenport Babcock

8. “I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed: and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I fail and keep trying.” ~ Tom Hopkins

9. “A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

10. “If you are going through hell, keep going.” ~ Winston Churchill

11. “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

12. “Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic. It is not idly, passively waiting and hoping for some good thing to happen. It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying. We must never give up, regardless of temptations, frustrations, disappointments, or discouragements.” ~ Joseph P. Wirthlin

13. “The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.” ~ Author Unknown

14. “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” ~ Japanese Proverb

15. “If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.” ~ Flavia Weedn

16. “Stubbornly persist, and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits.” ~ Robert Brault

17. “The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.” ~ Author unknown

18. “What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” ~ General Dwight Eisenhower

19. “A difficult time can be more readily endured if we retain the conviction that our existence holds a purpose – a cause to pursue, a person to love, a goal to achieve.” ~ John Maxwell

20. “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” ~ Albert Einstein

21. “Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.” ~ Author Unknown

22. “The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” ~ Chinese Proverb

23. “Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.” ~William Feather

24. “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.” ~ Thomas Paine

25. “Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.” ~ Christopher Morley
