Use what talents you possess, the woods will be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. Henry van Dyke

To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action till the goal is reached. The key is action. Michael Hanson

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. Sir Winston Churchill

Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.Newt Gingrich

In most domains, talent is overrated compared to determination — partly because it makes a better story, partly because it gives ++onlookers an excuse for being lazy, and partly because after a while determination starts to look like talent. Paul Graham

"‎"Anyone who says love is free has never truly been in love. Your lover will need comfort. Your spouse will have bad days. Your child will have their heart broken, more than once and you will be expected to help pick up the pieces. Your beloved pets become a parade of joy and loss. Love costs, sometimes it costs everything you have, and sometimes it costs more. On those days you weigh the joy you gain against the pain; you weigh the energy given from the loving and the energy lost from the duties that love places upon us. Love can be the most expensive thing in the world. If it's worth it, great, but if not, then love does not conquer all, sometimes you are conquered by it. You are laid waste before the breathtaking pain of it, and crushed under the weight of it's obligations."
