A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop.
A man can do anything he wants to do in this world, at least if he wants to do it badly enough.
A thick skin is a gift from God.
An invincible determination can accomplish almost anything and in this lies the great distinction between great men and little men.
Be determined to handle any challenge in a way that will make you grow.
Construct your Determination with Sustained Effort, Controlled Attention, and Concentrated Energy. opportunities never come to those who wait… they are captured by those who dare to attack.
Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.
Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.
Determination that just won't quit — that's what it takes.
Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.
Earnestness is not by any means everything; it is very often a subtle form of pious pride because it is obsessed with the method and not with the Master.
Firmness in enduring and exertion is a character I always wish to possess. I have always despised the whining yelp of complaint and cowardly resolve.
I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?
I have brought myself, by long meditation, to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will which will stake even existence upon its fulfillment.
I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark.
I will go anywhere, provided it be forward.
If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of effort is the measure of the results.
No man can fight his way to the top and stay at the top without exercising the fullest measure of grit, courage, determination, resolution. Every man who gets anywhere does so because he has first firmly resolved to progress in the world and then has enough stick-to-it-tiveness to transform his resolution into reality. Without resolution, no man can win any worthwhile place among his fellow men.
Not an inch of our territory not a stone of our fortress.
