E. O. Wilson

When there's a setback, someone with a fixed mindset will start thinking, 'Maybe I don't have what it takes?' They may get defensive and give up. A hallmark of a successful person is that they persist in the face of obstacle, and often, these obstacles are blessings in disguise.
Carol S. Dweck
Persist and persevere, and you will find most things that are attainable, possible.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
If you persist in your purpose of secession, there will be war - a bloody and cruel war. Not only will the North fight, but she will also triumph.

H. P. Lovecraft
