My thoughts on these quotes

Are you used to persevering in life or are you among those who give up halfway? These quotes are very eloquent, success is achieved through perseverance. I have gathered some famous authors from different worlds and their sayings about perseverance.
I like Walter Elliot’s quote about perseverance, which is not one race, but several small races. More small achieved goals lead to a bigger realized goal. And a quote from Victor Hugo – perseverance is the secret of all victories. Those who persevere reach the goal. Those who despair halfway through will never know what kind of victory they could achieve. Just like the Sunday quote says – with the perseverance of people, they succeed in things that seem unattainable.

These are my thoughts on the topic of perseverance and quotes for this week. I will be happy if you share your thoughts with me in the comments.

My weekly video

I prepare a video with new positive thoughts for the coming week every Sunday, with proverbs, or quotes from famous writers, poets, philosophers, celebrities, and photos from different authors, and post it on YouTube. You can watch this week video on this link:

    Hey Nina. Great quotes! I have a document saved on my laptop in which I’ve collected a few years’ worth of quotes from well-known and not-so-well-known figures. One of my favorites is:

    “I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours” by Henry David Thoreau.

    This goes with the theme of your post on perseverance! I’ll be taking the quotes from John Quincy Adams, Victor Hugo and Goethe and adding them to my list 🙂

    Thank you!

    I live for positive affirmations like this! Thank you so so much for writing this. I really appreciate it. I’m a fan of quotes myself, i’d share a few, but I think only one of us is the expert! 😉 Subscribed and hopefully I’ll see more like this on the greater internet. Do you ever post anything by Khalil Gibran?

    Thank you for sharing your post about the Positive Quotes. To be honest with you I liked all of it and all of it is my favorite as I love positive quotes. They give me more will and so much positive energy to move forward in life despite all, what life offers. These words have so much energy because to me they are not just words. They were spoken focused with the internal positive energy.

    All the best!
