Friday Philosophy ~ Tenacity

Even though the family shield says “unalterable” I think they may have made a mistake. The word they should have put there is “tenacious.” Stubbornness and the refusal to quit are traits heading down from both sides, so I figured I would focus on those for this week’s Philosophy.

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.” ~ James A. Michener

“Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.” ~ Louis Pasteur

“Tenacity is when you follow your heart, when the whole world is screaming to get back in your head.” ~ Sonia Choquette

“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.” ~ Julie Andrews

“You go on. You set one foot in front of the other, and if a thin voice cries out, somewhere behind you, you pretend not to hear, and keep going.” ~ Geraldine Brooks

Keep going.

Blessings to you all.
