I Will Persevere!

After attending a romance writers conference this week where I sat in on some great workshops and mingled with amazing fellow romance writers, I am freshly motivated to turn out better and better stories, and make J. Adams a household name in the book world.
So, here are a few thoughts on perseverance:-)

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't. ~Henry Ward Beecher

When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
~Author Unknown

The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground. ~Author Unknown

Fall seven times, stand up eight. ~Japanese Proverb

Stubbornly persist, and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits. ~Robert Brault

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another. ~Walter Elliott, The Spiritual Life

Harriet Beecher Stowe's quote reminds me of one my mother always said about dieting. She said she had the will power(I will eat anything in sight). It's the won't power that I don't have.
Your quotes are great. Thanks for sharing them.
