Let's Give it All We've Got

"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

"Sure I am of this, that you have only to endure to conquer. You have only to persevere to save yourselves".

"As long as the day lasts, let's give it all we've got."

David O. Mckay

"Success is usually earned by persevering and not becoming discouraged when we encounter challenges. Paul Harvey, the famous news analyst and author, once said: 'Someday I hope to enjoy enough of what the world calls success so that someone will ask me, "What's the secret of it?" I shall say simply this: "I get up when I fall down."
