Tenacious Quotations

You need to believe in yourself and what you do. Be tenacious and genuine.
Christian Louboutin

I think you grow wherever God plants you. I hope I'm growing as a person of faith, as a Christian. That should be our number one objective this journey of life. That all starts with a personal intimate relationship with Christ and then being in prayer every single day about all of those things - being tenacious about it.
J. C. Watts

Dane Cook

Be tenacious. Get as much stage time as possible.
Ana Gasteyer

I'm tenacious, I think - I know - and I do also have a quality where if you tell me I can't do something, if I know I can't do it I'm the first to raise my hand and say, 'I can't do that.' But there is a big Bronx, New York Jew in me that just says, 'Really? Really? You think I - yes, I can. I can do it. I can do it.'
Ellen Barkin
