This morning I found some really neat quotes on perseverance. I hope they add to your day and give you the extra push or lift you need:-)

Fulfillment is reaching your own expectations, not the expectations of others.

Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh

Some people grin and bear it; others smile and do it.

Someone has defined genius as intensity of purpose: the ability to do, the patience to wait... Put these together and you have genius, and you have achievement.
Leo J. Muir

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
Thomas Edison

Suggested Reading

Book: Born For Thorton's Sake
Author: Marcia Lynn McClure

The Book
HE WAS THE ONLY MAN SHE HAD EVER DREAMED OF BELONGING TO. THE ONLY MAN SHE HAD EVER WANTED. Maria Castillo Holt.the only daughter of a valiant Lord and his Spanish beauty. Following the tragic deaths of her parents, Maria would find herself spirited away by conniving kindred in an endurance of neglect and misery. However, rescued at the age of thirteen by Brockton Thorton, the son of her father's devoted friend, Lord Richard Thorton, Maria would at last find blessed reprieve. Further, the heir to Lord Thorton's title, Brockton Thorton became from that day forth, ever the absolute center of Maria's very existence. And as the day of her sixteenth birthday dawned, Maria's dreams of owning her heart's desire, seemed to become a blissful reality. Yet a fiendish plotting intruded, and Maria's hopes of realizing her dreams come true were locked away within dark, impenetrable walls. Would Maria's dreams of life with the handsome and coveted Brockton Thorton die at the hands of a demon strength?

This is one of my favorite books by Marcia. Truthfully, she hasn't written a book I don't love, and I've read all of her at least a dozen times:-)
When your in the mood for a light-hearted romance, you can't go wrong with Marcia's books!
Born For Thorton's Sake is available on Amazon.com and Marcialynnmcclure.com
