Harriet Beecher Stowe
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Sir Winston Churchill
Never give in. Never. Never. Never. Never.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Fall seven times, stand up eight.
If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Results? Why, man, I have gotten lots of results! If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward....
Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
The greatest glory in living lies in not never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
William Dempster Hoard
Happiness doesn't depend on what we have, but it does depend on how we feel toward what we have. We can be happy with little and miserable with much.
Failure is an event, never a person.
If you want the rainbow, then you've gotta put up with the rain.
Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world.
Marian Wright Edelman
You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
Mary Kay Ash
Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.
John Quincy Adams
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
Some give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; while others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.
Franklin D Roosevelt
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Hope is what led a band of colonists to rise up against an empire; what led the greatest of generations to free a continent and heal a nation; what led young women and young men to sit at lunch counters and brave fire hoses and march through Selma and Montgomery for freedom's cause. Hope is what led me here today - with a father from Kenya, a mother from Kansas; and a story that could only happen in the United States of America. Hope is the bedrock of this nation; the belief that our destiny will not be written for us, butby us; by all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is; who have courage to remake the world as it should be.
Sanity may be madness but the maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.
All the great spiritual leaders in history were people of hope. Abraham, Moses, Ruth, Mary, Jesus, Rumi, Gandhi, and Dorothy Day all lived with a promise in their hearts that guided them toward the future without the need to know exactly what it would look like. Let's live with hope.
