Determination Quotes

"It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles."
Claude M. Bristol

"The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials."
Chinese Proverb

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone 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."
John Calvin Coolidge

"When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it - but all that had gone before."
Jacob Riis

"A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop."
Robert Hughes

"If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance."
Samuel Johnson
