Your persistence is your measure of faith in yourself.
Defeat may test you, it need not stop you. If at first you don’t succeed, try another way. For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. The greatest mistake is giving up.
I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.
Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.
Fall seven times, stand up eight.
The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.
